Pharmaceutical and Medical Device
Ellis & Winters has established an outstanding reputation in the litigation and trial of pharmaceutical and medical device matters. Our attorneys have defended a variety of claims against manufacturers and suppliers of prescription medications, including medications used for the treatment of chronic pain, adult-onset diabetes, seizures, erectile dysfunction, bacterial infections, gastroesophageal reflux disease, and hyperlipidemia. In addition, we have defended a host of manufacturers and suppliers of medical devices, including breast implants, penile implants, artificial knees, bone screws, cardiac defibrillators, heart valves, surgical sutures, hypodermic syringes, and organ bags. We also have extensive practice defending providers of medical services, such as blood transfusions and other laboratory services and testing.
Our attorneys have served as lead trial counsel, regional coordinating counsel, state-wide counsel, and local counsel in the defense of these important matters. In addition, we are sometimes called on to represent clients in a specific role, such as identifying and developing defense experts, or designing effective challenges to plaintiffs' experts who depart from the sound scientific methodology. Ellis & Winters attorneys are prepared to serve in any capacity as team players who seek the best result for the client.
