Wilson Elser advises pharmaceutical, medical device and biotechnology clients at all stages, including product development, regulatory, clinical research, clinical trials, risk management and product liability, including product recalls. Our national team of drug, device, and biotechnology attorneys defend companies against sophisticated class action and mass tort cases in state and federal courts. Many of our Pharmaceutical & Medical Devices service attorneys have degrees in science, biotechnology, nursing, and other backgrounds that compliment our ability to provide advice, counsel and defense.

Companies have designated our firm as national coordinating counsel and regional defense counsel in multi-plaintiff, multi-state pharmaceutical and medical device cases as well as individual cases that involve complex technical and scientific issues relating to claims of injury and loss valued in the millions of dollars. Our clients value our experience and guidance.

Wilson Elser has extensive experience representing pharmaceutical (brand and generic), biotechnology, and medical device companies in litigation and trial. Each claim is unique in the drug, medical device, and biotechnology arena. In addition, invasive e-Discovery has raised the stakes and the cost of defense. Wilson Elser makes a point of establishing close collaborative relationships with clients to focus on developing efficient and cost-effective litigation plans and budgets from the inception of the defense through trial.

We recognize that proven trial capability is essential when litigation strategies fail to leverage cases toward reasonable business resolutions. Our attorneys have served as lead trial counsel across the country in cases where plaintiffs have demonstrated unyielding, unreasonable monetary expectations. We have a track record of winning solid defense verdicts.
