An associate in Sandberg Phoenix’s Products Liability Practice Group, Tim Tryniecki joined the firm in June of 2017 as a lateral, bringing with him a wealth of experience specializing in the defense of high stakes, toxic tort lawsuits for clients ranging from Fortune 500 companies to family businesses. Tim has litigated cases in the state and federal courts of Missouri and Illinois, as well as the state courts of New York, and has been instrumental in the satisfactory resolution of matters through settlement, mediation and trial. He has taken countless depositions and prepared varied pleadings in jurisdictions across the country while overseeing client accounts encompassing hundreds of matters at a time. His experience also includes the defense of companies and individuals in catastrophic personal injury matters, medical malpractice claims and general business litigation.
“I like to learn my clients’ stories, and set a tone of being responsive to their every need and concern early on,” Tim says. “Even in the context of mass torts, no two cases are exactly alike, and it is vitally important to provide creative, responsive and detail-oriented representation that is tailored to the client’s specific needs. Doing this allows me to deliver value to the client while bringing their case to a successful resolution, however they may define that.”
Tim earned his Juris Doctor with Dean’s List honors from Washington University in St. Louis School of Law in 2011. While there, Tim was active in numerous organizations and activities, including:
Prior to law school, Tim earned a B.A. with Dean’s List honors in Political Science and minors in French and Italian, from the University of Notre Dame in 2007. He also earned the prestigious International Diploma from the National Academy for the Study of Political Sciences (Sciences-Po) in Paris, France in 2006, during which time he was published in an international law journal and became a fluent French speaker.
Outside of the office, Tim is an active mentor through Big Brothers Big Sisters of Eastern Missouri, a longtime volunteer at the St. Louis Crisis Nursery and a member of the St. Louis Priory School Alumni Association.
