Ericson W. Enger Associate




Ericson Enger takes pride in helping his clients effectively navigate even the most complex matters. His practice focuses on the defense of claims related to general liability, premises liability, personal injury and product liability. Ericson has a wide-ranging background in a diverse array of litigation practice areas, including products liability, commercial litigation, professional liability, civil rights litigation and copyright law. 

In his civil litigation practice, Ericson has successfully represented Fortune 100 companies in various federal jurisdictions across the United States, including multidistrict litigation. Given Ericson's experience in complex litigation, he takes pride in his meticulous attention to detail and believes that the ability to analyze every aspect of a case is one of the defining traits of a superior advocate. 

Ericson led his previous firm's Anti-Fraud and Internal Audit Team, where he successfully represented Fortune 100 companies in various federal, state and multidistrict jurisdictions across the United States. During that time, with the use of cutting-edge software and tools, Ericson developed various novel litigation strategies that employed modern techniques to seek the global dismissal of dozens – and in some instances hundreds – of cases, as opposed to a one-off approach. As a result of his antifraud efforts, Ericson was able to secure more than a thousand federal case dismissals, which not only served as an effective hedge against future frivolous lawsuits but also ultimately saved his clients hundreds of millions in potential legal costs. 

Prior to his work as an attorney, Ericson served as a law clerk for William L. Waller Jr., Chief Justice of the Mississippi Supreme Court, prior to his run for governor of Mississippi.

Representative Matters

Successfully prosecuted hundreds of individual toxic tort claims, all of which were based on alleged diagnoses rendered by two physicians who had no knowledge that the "diagnoses" would be used as the basis for hundreds of federal lawsuits. These findings led to the dismissal of more than 400 separate lawsuits, all of which were brought in the Southern District of Mississippi. 

Successfully attained the dismissal of 28 separate federal toxic tort cases through the filing of a single Motion for Summary Judgment based on plaintiffs' previous filing of a workers' compensation claim, which violated an "Election of Remedies" provision contained in the Medical Settlement Agreement.
