Attorneys of the Year 2014

Minnesota Attorney of the YearAttorney Fred Pritzker was recognized as one of the 2014 Attorneys of the Year by the Minnesota Lawyer newspaper. In addition, Pritzker will receive the newspaper’s Circle of Excellence award for winning Attorney of the Year award for the second time.

Fred was selected for their representation of a number of people who developed severe injuries following ingestion of a food product (the case is subject to a confidentiality provision).

The case was incredibly complicated. Because of the extreme rarity of the illness presentation in these cases and a general lack of knowledge regarding the mechanism of injury, there was no medical literature supporting a cause and effect relationship between the product, its ingredients and the medical condition. This resulted in an international search to identify competent experts who later conducted peer-reviewed scientific research that demonstrated the mechanism by which the food product caused harm.

The case was resolved after almost two years of litigation pursuant to an aggregate eight-figure settlement.
