Mark Your Calendar for the 2016 Drug and Med on December 5-7 in New York City

Dear Colleagues:

We hope you will join this community of leaders in discussing the challenges that come into play in high-stakes drug and medical device products liability litigation and the opportunities before defense litigators to better advocate on behalf of life-saving and life-improving drugs and devices.

We are coming off the 2015 conference - our most well-attended to date with over 425 attendees and the highest in-house participation to date - still feeling motivated and inspired. On the whole, attendees applauded our diverse and dynamic faculty for providing actionable and practical tools for litigating effectively and cost-efficiently. Based on attendees’ feedback from last year and upon the advice of our In-House Advisory Board, here are some of the topics you can expect for the 2016 program:

  • Defense Counsel Only War Room: Lessons Learned From 2016’s Biggest Defense Victories and Most Challenging Rulings
  • General Counsel and Chief Litigation Officer Roundtable: “What Keeps Me Up at Night When Faced With a Products Liability Action”
  • Striking Back Against Innovative Third Party Litigation Funding and Aggressive Attorney Advertising
  • A Practical Guide to Using Tools in the Defense Arsenal to Fight Litigation Tourism and Frivolous Litigation
  • Combating Plaintiffs’ Tactical Advantage in Discovery: Specific Strategies for Limiting Production and Cost-Effective Preservation Under the Amended FRCP Rules
  • Exploring the Risks and Potential Products Liability Consequences for 3D Printing
  • Avoiding Drug and Med Litigation Pitfalls Arising from Emergent Areas of the Law: Biosimilars, Personalized Medicine, Sunshine Act, and More
