A partner in Lieff Cabraser’s New York office, Annika K. Martin represents plaintiffs in class action and mass tort litigation over defective products, drugs, and medical devices, consumer fraud, and environmental disasters.
Most recently, Annika has been representing plaintiffs nationwide with physical and economic injuries arising from GM vehicles with defective ignition switches and patients nationwide suffering from the widespread outbreak of meningitis caused by contaminated medication. Representing individuals, property owners, and business owners across the Gulf Coast in class action litigation against BP, Transocean, Halliburton, and other companies responsible for the 2010 Deepwater Horizon oil spill, Annika was deeply involved in negotiating, implementing, and gaining court approval for the economic and medical settlements with BP that have delivered over $9.3 billion so far to compensate spill victims.
An active leader in the legal community, Annika serves as Co-Chair of AAJ’s Class Action Litigation Group, leads drafting teams for publications of the Duke Law School Center for Judicial Studies, and is on the Steering Committee for the Sedona Conference’s Working Group 1. Annika also speaks and writes regularly on issues of class actions, mass torts, and e-discovery.
