Brad Biggs is an attorney at Simmons Hanly Conroy based in the Alton office. He started full-time in 2022 but previously worked with the firm as a contract attorney on the National Prescription Opioid MDL trials.

Brad is a member of the complex litigation team and focuses on reviewing court documents and defendant and plaintiff production to develop the best legal strategies for trial.

“This work gives me the ability to help real people who have been wronged or taken advantage of by large corporations that seem impossible to fight or stand up against,” Brad said.

Fighting the Opioid Crisis

As part of the research and discovery team in the ongoing National Prescription Opiates Multidistrict Litigation, Brad conducted and led an extensive document review for the MDL representing local governments across the country. This national litigation alleges drug companies contributed to the opioid crisis by carelessly promoting painkillers and downplaying addiction risks.

As an e-discovery attorney, Brad knows how crucial electronic discovery is in the litigation process. His attention to detail ensures that evidence and documents are accurate and consistent for the attorneys in court.

“Total client care involves treating each client with competence, consideration and sincerity,” Brad said. “I will do my best to put clients at ease and sincerely address their issues, fostering a real and honest working relationship.”

Background and Experience

Brad has worked as an e-discovery attorney since 2019, working primarily on the national prescription opioid litigation. Previously, he worked for a St. Louis law firm and as a legal research intern at the National Sports Law Institute in Milwaukee.

Brad received a B.S. in Sport Management from the University of Missouri-Columbia in 2014. He received his J.D. from Marquette University Law School in 2017, including a Sports Law Certificate. While at Marquette, Brad participated in the Law School Pro Bono Society and Sports Law Society, wrote for the Sports Law Review, and offered his services at the Volunteer Legal Clinic.
