Phil Goldberg, the director of PPI’s Center for Civil Justice, is a partner at Shook Hardy & Bacon LLP. As a public policy attorney, Goldberg has more than two decades of experience with liability-related public policies and public affairs. From 1993 through 2000, he worked for Democratic Members of Congress, including Rep. Steve Rothman (NJ), when Mr. Rothman served on the House Judiciary Committee. Since joining Shook in 2003, Goldberg has regularly testified before legislatures, filed amicus briefs in federal and state courts, spoken at judicial education programs, and authored legal scholarship on important liability-related matters.
America’s civil justice system is a “public good” that should produce predictable, accurate and just results. The PPI Center for Civil Justice seeks to defend the integrity of our legal system from litigation abuse and efforts to bypass legislatures to make policy in the courts.
