This is the place to be if you want to do Drug & Medical Device Litigation. You have the best of the best here. You have the in-house Lawyers who manage this litigation, you’ve got the attorneys and trial lawyers who trial the cases, you’ve got the pallet lawyers who argue the cases in appeal, you’ve got the deans of the litigation as well as the rising stars. If you want to do this work, this is the place to be and it’s been this way for as long as I’ve been practicing in this area and I’ve been coming to this conference for over 20 years.

It truly is a conference that has the most participants from this area of law. I’m surrounded at ACI by outside counsel and inside counsel at law firms across the country that are doing the same work that I’m doing. And it’s a great opportunity to not only network and meet people that I can work with in the future but more importantly to figure out what’s working for others.

…for almost 20 years. I try not to miss [this event] because I find it is a valuable way to learn about developments in the products field. Of course, it is also always great to catch up with in-house peers, outside counsel and to also meet new colleagues.
