Chandler Bailey defends companies that make and sell products.
For over 20 years, Chandler has represented product manufacturers and suppliers around the country in high-stakes cases involving catastrophic injuries and wrongful death. Chandler knows the importance of taking the time to understand how products work and why. Using that knowledge, along with an exhaustive investigation of the incident, Chandler develops powerful trial themes that often lead to a successful solution for his clients short of the courthouse. In all of it, he works to ensure that his client’s side of the story is told.
Chandler makes it a priority to understand his clients’ businesses, their products and get to know their employees. This allows him to not only represent them in any one particular case, but also to provide more comprehensive counsel that goes beyond the current engagement. This strategy has earned him the trust of several of the country’s largest companies. Serving as their national and regional counsel, he has represented them in serious, high-exposure lawsuits in more than 20 states across the country. When it matters most, Chandler is a seasoned courtroom lawyer, having tried cases to verdict in many different venues — from Georgia to Arizona.
Chandler currently serves on Lightfoot's Executive Committee and its Hiring Committee, is a past participant in the Alabama State Bar’s Leadership Forum and co-chaired the Alabama Defense Lawyers Association (ADLA) Annual Trial Academy. He is also a member of the Product Liability Advisory Council (PLAC).
Chandler has been honored by several leading legal publications. He was selected by Benchmark Litigation as a "Local Litigation Star" from 2017 to 2021, listed in the 2018 - 2021 editions of The Best Lawyers in America© by BL Rankings, and recognized by Thomson Reuters' Super Lawyers every year since 2010.
Outside of the office, Chandler stays busy helping his wife keep up with their two active boys’ sports and social calendars. If there are any hours left in a day, you can probably find him playing golf, at the lake or cheering on the Florida Gators.
