Pharmaceutical Medical Device Litigation

Furman Kornfeld & Brennan LLP has unique and extensive experience in pharmaceutical litigation. FKB lawyers have represented hundreds of physicians in drug-related litigation. In addition, FKB lawyers have previously represented defendants in Fen-Phen, Rezulin and Vioxx litigation. Partner Patrick J. Brennan served as national coordinating counsel for a national company sued in the Fen-Phen diet drug litigation in federal and state courts. Partner Neil S. Kornfeld also has significant experience managing multi-venue litigation and was statewide counsel for a series of claims involving allegedly tainted blood used by hemophiliacs.

FKB lawyers have access to top scientific and medical experts and we maintain current information on plaintiff’s experts. FKB’s background and success in handling medical malpractice claims has proven to be invaluable in our ability to assess damage, evaluate medical witnesses and causation theories.

FKB offers a broad range of services specifically suited to the needs of manufacturers, importers and distributors of medical devices. This includes assisting with responding to Food & Drug Administration filing needs, “Quality System (QS) Regulation/Medical Device Good Manufacturing Practices” and related regulatory issues. We have extensive experience defending clients against defective product claims throughout the New York State and Federal Courts.

We are well-versed in e-discovery matters, preservation of electronically stored information (ESI) and litigation holds that frequently arise when defending medical device and pharmaceutical manufacturers facing potential litigation. We have experience with federal preemption issues and Daubert motions.
