“[A]n expert in product liability” and “an exceptional attorney” is how Chambers and Partners described Alexandra Bach Lagos in its 2022 U.S. Edition.

A partner in the firm’s nationally recognized products liability practice, Ms. Lagos is a litigator with experience representing many of the world’s leading consumer product manufacturers. She has litigated hundreds of complex product liability cases from inception through trials and appeals. Representative clients include pharmaceutical and medical device manufacturers, transportation and rideshare companies, tobacco manufacturers, and life sciences companies.

A native Miamian, Alexandra is familiar with the nuances of litigating in Florida’s courts. Alexandra often presents to other attorneys on topics relating to litigation and trial practice and serves as a faculty member for several recurring trial skills programs.

Alexandra is a vocal advocate for women lawyers – the Daily Business Review notes she “has built an impressive career as a litigator and along the way is helping other female attorneys climb the ladder.” She is a past president of the Miami-Dade Chapter of the Association for Women Lawyers and the recipient of several awards recognizing her advocacy for women lawyers, including the University of Miami School of Law’s Alumni Leadership Award and Florida International University College of Law’s Celebrating Women in Law Award.
