Peggy Ableman, the former Delaware Superior Court judge is joining McCarter & English. She will be handling product liability litigation involving medical devices, defective product claims, and pharmaceuticals. On Monday, the firm’s website announced that Peggy Ableman has joined the law firm’s Wilmington, Delaware office as Special Counsel. Ableman has almost 30 years of experience as a state trial judge and her consultation would be invaluable for the firm’s clients.

Speaking on the occasion, the firm’s Chairman Michael P. Kelly said, “Peggy is a dear friend of mine who has had a long career as a leader on the bench and in the courtroom … She has played a significant role in shaping Delaware law for the past three decades and is nationally known and admired in the toxic tort arena.”
