With over 60 product liability defense and commercial litigation attorneys, Williams Kastner has the depth and experience to represent pharmaceutical and medical device manufacturers in product liability, commercial and other litigation.

For over four decades, Williams Kastner has been on the forefront of defending pharmaceutical and medical device manufacturers and their lifesaving, life-enhancing products. Today’s pharmaceutical and medical device manufacturers face an increasing number of challenges from aggressive and organized plaintiffs’ attorneys, expanded attorney advertising, the development of anti-company or antiproduct Websites or blogs, changes in tort law and regulatory requirements, and advances in technology. Williams Kastner’s attorneys are experienced in addressing the unique legal issues that pharmaceutical and medical device manufacturers encounter on a local, regional and national level.

Through the years, Williams Kastner attorneys have successfully defended a substantial number of pharmaceutical, medical device and medical malpractice cases, often involving catastrophic injuries or death, in which medical causation was a primary issue. We thoroughly understand the importance of expert testimony and have formed excellent relationships with many of the most knowledgeable doctors and scientists in the world.

We have extensive experience in handling state and federal class actions, multidistrict litigation (MDL) as MDL Defense Liaison Counsel and local counsel, complex litigation, regulatory proceedings, mediations, and arbitrations. Our appellate practice specializes in identifying issues and preserving the record for appeal. Williams Kastner attorneys and paralegals stay abreast of the latest federal and local laws governing medical devices, pharmaceuticals and biologics. We also provide legal consultation before litigation as an effective risk management tool.
