Celebrate the 20th Anniversary of Drug and Med this December

Dear Colleague,

Be part of the community of high-stakes drug and medical device products liability litigators at the 20th anniversary edition of ACI’s flagship Drug and Med conference, a forum designed to facilitate discussion of the opportunities before defense litigators to better advocate on behalf of life-saving and life-improving drug and device companies. By attending this conference, you will walk away with practical advice on crafting the most effective defenses in mass tort litigation in response to the latest legal challenges.

Why the 20th anniversary event is a must-attend for you and your team:

  • Network and brainstorm with the Who’s Who of the products liability defense bar. This year’s In-House Advisory Board and faculty includes over 35 attorneys representing over 30 different companies including Medtronic, Pfizer, Eli Lilly, C.R. Bard and dozens more. Our faculty of trial-tested defense advocates will share the methods that have worked for them in recent battles and provide specific advice for litigating effectively and efficiently. Plus, in-house counsel are invited to participate in a networking luncheon, designed to promote candid discussion about the state
    of the industry in a less formal setting.
  • Get a balanced, 360 degree view of products liability litigation from key stakeholders. This is the only event which brings together not only an exceptional in-house presence on the faculty but also features the top defense firms representing biopharmaceutical and medical device companies, 12 experienced federal and state jurists from around the country, and top DOJ enforcers who will share their perspective.
  • Participate in sophisticated and practical sessions tailored to appeal to masters in the field. This year’s agenda features new forward-thinking sessions on the topics sure to make headlines in 2016: torts premised on discovery violations, the future of off-label promotion, CAFA and personal jurisdiction, plaintiffs’ advertising, international products liability litigation, and more.
  • Partake in the vibrant cultural resources that only New York City in December can offer, while mingling with hundreds of like-minded peers.
