Food, Drug & Medical Device Litigation

MDAFP’s 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. The Food, Drug and Medical Device industries operate in a highly regulated environment. We have a wealth of experience working with our clients 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. 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’ backgrounds in medical and scientific fields provide the capacity, commitment, and initiative to become well-versed in the client’s product and the technical subject matter. Our attorneys welcome the opportunity to work closely with corporate counsel and risk managers to devise and implement litigation and business plans that will ensure the best possible resolution under any given set of facts and circumstances. To keep abreast of rapidly changing pharmaceutical and medical device liability law, our lawyers take advantage of continuing education offered by such national organizations as the Defense Research Institute (DRI), the Food and Drug Law Institute (FDLI) and the International Association of Defense Counsel (IADC).

We have a proven record of success in obtaining dismissals for our clients through summary judgment and other pretrial motions, and when the decision is made to try a case, we have the skills acquired from personal experience to succeed at trial.

MDAFP has successfully defended manufacturers, distributors and retailers of prescription drug manufacturer’s, hip and knee implants, shoulder pain pumps, surgical devices, orthotic and electrical stimulation devices, emergency response monitoring systems, nutritional and dietary supplements, as well as investigational devices pending FDA approval.
