Drug and Medical Device Liability

Arnstein & Lehr has built a national reputation for successfully representing companies in the defense of complex claims made against medical devices, drugs and biologics.

Our attorneys have appeared in numerous state and federal courts, with substantial involvement regionally and nationally in mass-tort, multidistrict litigation and “global settlement strategies.” Our representation includes all aspects of litigation, including pre-trial discovery (including e-discovery on both a small and large scale), preparing and arguing dispositive motions, trials before judges and juries, alternative dispute resolution, and appeals.

Our experience includes the defense of such products as drug eluting stents, contact lens solutions, implanted contraceptives, ophthalmologic lasers, orthopedic implants, as well as generic and brand name pharmaceuticals.

We utilize our many successes in and out of court to help clients identify, minimize and avoid liability. In this vein, our attorneys have considerable experience advising clients on preventive measures that are designed to reduce the risk of liability yet are in harmony with strategic business objectives. To that end, we also provide counsel concerning regulatory compliance issues.

Attorneys in this group are sought after authors and speakers at national and international seminars and conferences on current issues affecting pharmaceutical and medical device manufacturers. We are also active members of the Defense Research Institute, The Product Liability Advisory Council, state Defense Lawyers Associations and are recognized for our expertise by the Council on Litigation Management.
