MONTGOMERY, Ala. — Beasley Allen has been selected for inclusion on The National Law Journal’s 2008 Plaintiffs’ Hot List. The list is the magazine’s “unscientific survey” of the litigation scene since the summer of 2007, and features exemplary firms that devote at least half of their resources to plaintiffs’ work, and which have achieved at least one significant win during that period. Only 15 firms in the United States were selected to appear on the 2008 list.

According to the Law Journal, a “significant” win means prevailing in a bench or jury trial when the stakes were high, such as a hefty sum of money, or the case could affect the litigation strategy or outcome of similar cases nationally. The firms selected for the 2008 Plaintiffs’ Hot List were recognized by the NLJ as representing the best qualities of the plaintiffs’ bar and demonstrating unusual dedication and creativity.

In addition to its inclusion on the Hot List, Beasley Allen’s founding shareholder, Jere L. Beasley, was profiled. Beasley discussed the outcome of the well-known Vioxx litigation, in which drug manufacturer Merck & Co. was held liable for serious side effects including heart attack and death suffered as a result of its product. The drug maker agreed in July to begin making payments into a settlement fund, to eventually total $4.85 billion.
