The experience and expertise in the areas of Product Liability and Medical Malpractice have fostered and enhanced our ability to respond to the unique needs of our Food, Drug and Medical Device clients. These clients operate in highly regulated industries, and we have a wealth of experience working in this environment.
Our role begins early with risk management, attention to medical literature, knowledge of regulatory practices and applicable statutory and case law. We focus on sound preventive strategies and an aggressive defense approach. We are familiar with the requirements of multidistrict litigation and strive for both efficiency and organization in the process of defending MDL matters. Our attorneys are admitted in New York, New Jersey, California, Connecticut, Massachusetts, Michigan, Missouri, Pennsylvania, Texas, Virginia, and Washington, D.C., as well as in England and Wales, and have served as national coordinating counsel and local litigation counsel on various programs.
We have defended members of the National Food Processors Association and have worked for manufacturers of food products and over-the-counter vitamin supplements in cases involving adulterated products and claims of foreign objects. We have published and lectured on liability issues in connection with obesity claims, medical devices used in the rehabilitation or long-term care setting, and in the context of the defense of product liability claims generally.
As a result of our experience with litigation in this area, we have worked closely with the scientific, medical and academic communities to utilize their knowledge. Our attorneys are members of the Food and Drug Law Institute (FDLI), the Defense Research Institute (DRI) and other national organizations and state bar associations for whom we have lectured on numerous topics in this field.
