Todd's practice areas primarily include class actions, insurance litigation, products liability, antitrust litigation, toxic and environmental torts, personal injury, and wrongful death. He has appeared as lead counsel in courts across the United States representing clients at all stages of litigation and has lectured on various aspects of the legal profession at numerous seminars and at the University of Cincinnati College of Law.

Todd frequently represents large classes and entities. He represented the State of Ohio in a securities lawsuit relating to the merger of Exxon and Mobil. He has also represented multiple states, including Connecticut, in pharmaceutical pricing litigation. Todd served on the trial team in antitrust litigation involving the oriented strand board industry that resulted in an aggregate settlement of over $120,000,000. Additionally, Todd has served as lead counsel in multiple life insurance cases in which he has obtained contested class certification, ultimately resolving the cases for millions of dollars. One such case was filed on behalf of beneficiaries of the Federal Employees Group Life Insurance (FEGLI) Policy, the world's largest group life insurance program. Todd presently serves as lead and/or co-counsel in numerous multi-million dollar complex civil litigation cases throughout the State of Ohio and nationwide.

Todd has also represented many individuals in high-value litigation involving severe personal injuries and wrongful death. He recently acted as lead counsel in a case against the Montgomery County, Ohio dog warden for the warden's alleged failure to act to prevent the fatal mauling of a Dayton resident. The multi-million dollar settlement of that case, following Plaintiff's defeat of the Dog Warden's motion for summary judgment, is believed to be the largest settlement ever against an animal control agency. Todd also recently obtained a $10.3 million verdict against Ethicon for the alleged failure of one its surgical staplers to function as intended during a bowel resection. He then successfully defended the appeal of that verdict before the Second District Court of Appeals.

Todd is admitted to practice in the State of Ohio, the United States Supreme Court, the United States Court of Appeals for the Sixth Circuit, and the United States District Court for the Southern and Northern Districts of Ohio. He serves as an Attorney Mediator for the Southern District of Ohio, and an Arbitrator for the Clermont County Common Pleas Court and the Cincinnati Bar Association Fee Arbitration Committee. Todd is a Fellow with the Cincinnati Academy of Leadership for Lawyers.
