In addition to its own attorneys, Summit County has brought on private counsel from law firms Napoli Shkolnik PLLC, of New York City, and Dewsnup King Olsen Worel Havas & Mortensen, and Magleby Cataxinos & Greenwood, both of Salt Lake City. The attorneys are working on a contingency, meaning they would only be paid from any damages the county receives if the lawsuit is successful.
Napoli Shkolnik is one of the leading law firms taking on opioid related litigation in the country, representing more than 100 counties across the U.S. He expressed his hope that other counties in Utah will join Summit County in taking legal action, and that their combined efforts will ultimately make a difference.
