Experienced Toxic Tort and Product Liability Lawyer, Sara Ingram, Joins Vorys
Vorys announced today that Sara Ingram, an experienced toxic tort and product liability defense lawyer, has joined the firm. She has significant experience in these matters stemming from her years of representing defendants in the hotbed jurisdictions of Illinois and Missouri. Ingram’s clients have included industrial product manufacturers, consumer product manufacturers, premises owners and clients in the transportation industries.
“Sara’s a highly respected litigator and legal project manager,” said Joe Miller, chair of the Vorys Litigation group. “At Vorys, she will serve as part of the national coordinating counsel team for defendants in asbestos litigation matters and assist with the coordination of litigation and strategy in the key jurisdictions across the country. This is something she has unique experience with and will help us better serve our clients.”
Ingram has significant experience in the management of high volume and complex litigation. She has successfully implemented unique strategies to reduce large inventories of cases, reduce settlement values as well as defense costs and to limit the frequency of naming in new suits for some clients. Ingram also has experience defending product manufacturers in large MDL product liability cases.
“I’ve had the opportunity to collaborate with Vorys lawyers on litigation matters for over a decade. They are smart, skilled and professional,” said Ingram. “When the opportunity presented itself to join the firm, it was one that I just could not pass up. They have a national toxic tort and product liability practice and joining it will give me the opportunity to continue to grow.”
Since 2015, Ingram has been named to Law Bulletin Publishing Company's list of Illinois Emerging Lawyers. Only two percent of Illinois lawyers under the age of 40 or who have been licensed to practice for 10 years or less earn this distinction.
Ingram received her J.D. from the Southern Illinois University School of Law and her B.A. from Illinois Wesleyan University.
