Product Liability – Medical Devices & Pharmaceuticals
Wicker Smith has broad and deep experience representing biologic, pharmaceutical and medical device manufacturers and distributors. We believe our pharmaceutical and medical device practice is differentiated by our broad-based healthcare litigation practice, and our concentrated focus on preparing cases for trial. We believe our bench of healthcare trial attorneys is unparalleled in the state of Florida. With 10 offices we can cover the entire state of Florida and beyond, as we have represented foreign and domestic manufacturers in MDLs and consolidated litigation including matters pending in Florida, New Jersey, Illinois, Wisconsin, North Carolina, California and Delaware. We have represented innovator biologic, pharma and medical device companies on products liability matters in the areas of oncology, cardiovascular, dermatology, autoimmune disorders, gastroenterology, orthopedics, trauma and travel medicine. While our primary focus is on litigation and trial work, our lawyers are well versed in regulatory and compliance matters and have counseled clients on NDA and ANDA applications, PMA compliance and FDA inspections. We also have experience representing marketers and distributors of ANDA and unapproved products in matters involving FDA compliance, 505b2 applications, federal and state unfair competition claims, and general commercial matters. We understand the stakes involved in pharmaceutical and medical device litigation, and remain committed to early case assessment and seeing matters through to successful resolution whether by way of settlement, dispositive motion practice or trial by jury.
