Alex Barlow

Senior Counsel

Alex Barlow has devoted his practice to complex litigation on behalf of injury victims. Alex considers himself fortunate to have tried and won cases on behalf of a diverse spectrum of plaintiffs – ranging from workingmen stricken with mesothelioma all the way to Fortune 500 companies.

His current trial docket includes cases on behalf of mesothelioma victims, former college athletes suffering from neurodegenerative diseases as a result of their playing days, victims of sexual abuse in religious or institutional settings and victims of defective medical devices. He also regularly prosecutes and tries general negligence cases on behalf of the catastrophically injured and wrongful death heirs.

Notable Cases & Results

During his career Alex has won verdicts on behalf of his clients in the areas of toxic tort, catastrophic injury, and commercial litigation.

Alex was previously the lead lawyer in achieving settlements on behalf of over 2000 victims in the transvaginal mesh litigation. Alex was also a member of the corporate discovery team spearheading the case against Ethicon in this litigation.

In past pharmaceutical litigation, Alex represented and achieved settlement on behalf of over 700 male children who developed gynecomastia as a result of taking Janssen Pharmaceuticals’ antipsychotic drug, Risperdal.

Alex has represented the Attorneys General of eight states against GlaxoSmithKline over the mismarketing of its drug, Avandia and two Oklahoma quasi-governmental health and retirement entities in litigation against Merc over its drug, Vioxx. Alex also served as counsel for thousands of men and women who suffered cardiovascular injuries from ingesting Avandia.

In Alex’s most interesting and challenging pro bono case, he facilitated the return of parental visitation rights to the mother of two children after her ex-husband, residing with the children in Malaysia, cut off her access for five years in contravention of U.S. court orders.
