Celebrate the 20th Anniversary of Drug and Med this December

Dear Colleagues:

This year marks the 20th anniversary of ACI’s flagship Drug and Med conference. 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.

Watch highlights from 2014 Drug and Med

We are coming off the 2014 conference- our most well-attended to date- still feeling motivated and inspired by the theme of Advocacy, Coordination, and Innovation.  On the whole, attendees applauded our diverse and dynamic faculty- featuring over 20 in-house counsel, Judges, FDA, AGs, and DOJ- for providing actionable and practical tools for litigating effectively and cost-efficiently. Based on attendees’ feedback from last year, we are upping the networking ante for our 20th anniversary edition by adding new companies and new faces to the faculty this year and including more structured networking sessions and breakouts throughout the three days in New York.  We hope every attendee walks away from the meeting with new connections and relevant and valuable takeaways to immediately incorporate into your daily work.

Highlights of the 20th anniversary program include:

  • Sophisticated and practical content tailored to appeal to masters in the field, designed from the insights of our In-House Advisory Board.
  • An exceptional in-house presence on the faculty with over 20 companies representing, featuring new faces and perspectives
  • Judicial Panel featuring renowned state and federal jurists experienced in mass tort and products liability litigation
  • Complimentary participation in the pre-conference group meet-ups led by in-house counsel featuring anonymous interactive polling this year
  • Highly tailored track sessions which enable attendees to focus on core areas of interest
  • Multiple networking lunches, breaks and cocktail receptions to connect with your peers
  • ACI’s 1st Annual Giants of the Products Liability Defense Bar Award, created to recognize and celebrate the successes and achievements of leaders in the community
