CVN BigLaw Spotlight: King & Spalding LLP

Posted by David Siegel on Mar 2, 2021 12:40:03 PM

For the latest installment in Courtroom View Network’s ongoing “BigLaw Spotlight” series highlighting the powerhouse white shoe firms represented in CVN’s one-of-a-kind on line trial video library, we focus on trials in the CVN archive featuring Atlanta-based defense giant King & Spalding LLP.


Boasting more than 1,100 attorneys in 23 offices worldwide, King & Spalding is largely represented in CVN’s trial archive through their work in tobacco and cosmetic talc-related trials. CVN regularly films “Engle progeny” tobacco trials in Florida state courts and cosmetic talc trials throughout the United States, and in doing so captured some of King & Spalding’s top partners in action in front of a jury.

The trials below are just a small sample of the numerous K&S trials in CVN’s archive, and an even smaller percentage of trials available overall. The vast majority include gavel-to-gavel video, including expert witness testimony, and digital images of exhibits and demonstratives.
