Bradley “Brad” Wolff defends businesses and individuals in litigation connected to products liability, premises liability and personal injury. He represents national and Georgia-based clients from a broad range of industries including automobile manufacturers, vaccine and other medical manufacturers, school systems, professional sports teams and venues, large and small insurers and more.
Brad’s diverse background includes handling matters ranging from small auto accident claims to multimillion dollar cases. He handles litigation and appellate cases in jurisdictions across the United States and is admitted to practice before the U.S. Supreme Court.
Brad spent more than 10 years as part of a team representing a national vaccine manufacturer in hundreds of claims alleging a connection to childhood autism. During this litigation Brad helped secure victory for the manufacturers in trial and appellate courts around the country, including by participating in a briefing to the U.S. Supreme Court.
At Swift Currie, Brad is often brought into matters by other lawyers in the firm to assist with complex motions and as appellate counsel.
Brad has a demonstrated history of addressing the unique and complex challenges facing a client’s business and litigation needs. Understanding that businesses rarely want to be involved in litigation, he works closely with the client to determine the best legal strategy to resolve a claim, either through settlement, trial or appeal.
At Swift Currie, Brad is a member of the firm’s Executive Committee and chair of the Technology Committee. He is also a co-author of the annual insurance law summary update that is published in the Mercer Law Review.
