In the last decade, the plaintiff’s bar has pursued emerging theories of liability against pharmaceutical companies, medical device manufacturers, and health products companies. The Life Sciences Group has been formed to meet the challenges facing these companies in the courtroom. The lawyers in the Life Sciences Group have been retained by pharmaceutical corporations, medical device manufacturers, and health products companies to defend their interests as both local and regional counsel in a variety of cases in Missouri and Illinois.
The Life Sciences Group provides a litigation team consisting of experienced trial counsel supported by trained paralegals and information technology infrastructure to work with clients and national counsel to achieve results.
The lawyers in the Life Sciences Group begin with an objective evaluation of the case. Then, working with corporate counsel or risk management, they will set up a plan for an aggressive and informed defense. The group is trained in providing a realistic and efficient defense budget.
The lawyers in the Life Sciences Group have substantial trial experience, which provides the basis to inform clients on what the trial outcome may be. And, lawyers in this Life Sciences Group are active in leadership roles in the areas of drug and medical device litigation in organizations such as the International Association of Defense Counsel and DRI.
