Georgia Hamann is a partner in the Phoenix office of Lewis Brisbois and a member of the General Liability Practice. She primarily focuses on tort matters, including premises liability, negligence, products liability, wrongful death, serious injury torts, and commercial litigation.
Ms. Hamann defends clients against personal injury and negligence-based torts. She has helped clients achieve numerous favorable settlement outcomes through her tactical and cost-effective litigation of personal injury and premises liability cases. In addition to identifying and pursing liability arguments, Ms. Hamann establishes strong defenses to causation and damages via educated medical discovery. She focuses on identifying and deposing key medical providers in order to obtain beneficial testimony – often more compelling to jurors and mediators than retained experts’ opinions. Clients trust her to provide rapid responses to emergencies as well as strategic defense throughout high-exposure cases. Ms. Hamann also assists clients who face products liability cases, including for implants, pumps, and other medical devices. She has helped manufacturers and distributors resolve these cases through motion practice as well as favorable settlements.
Ms. Hamann works with both plaintiffs and defendants in the general commercial litigation arena. She has helped clients successfully litigate commercial matters including construction contract disputes, and commercial lease disputes.
