The drug and medical device industry has increasingly been the target of large and expensive tort, product liability and class litigation. A case alleging a defective drug or device presents high risks and costs to a lucrative corporation. Losing at trial can result in the loss of consumer and shareholder confidence in the company and in its products. In addition, mass tort litigation has proliferated, making product liability litigation a very expensive and public affair. Plaintiffs who are more proficient at using media, public opinion and politics to their advantage are forcing companies to fight uphill battles in the court room and in the market. Litigation has also caused large cost increases in new product research and liability insurance, as well as halts in product development and clinical trials. As new judicial and regulatory developments are arising as a result of a growing body of complaints, it is imperative that corporate counsel remain up-to-date in order to effectively reduce their costs and their exposure to liability.

This senior-level forum will provide a legislative and strategic update on how to manage large-scale drug and medical device litigation. Up to the minute case studies and presentations presented by a distinguished, multi-disciplinary faculty will provide insight on how to effectively respond to the threat of litigation, minimize the risk of exposure to liability and manage the cost of litigation. Corporate counsel from the pharmaceutical, medical device and biotech industries, attorneys from firms defending large mass tort claims and class actions, regulators and other senior industry stakeholders will all find this forum invaluable. Can you afford not to attend?
