Pharmaceutical & Medical Device


Irwin Fritchie has a recognized and respected pharmaceutical and medical device practice. We have the resources to manage litigation from inception through trial and appeal, as well as the flexibility to work side by side with other premier law firms in a team environment.

Our work in this challenging area includes the defense of a wide variety of products, including: anti-depressants, aspirin, asthma medications, blood products, breast implants, cholesterol medications, diabetes drugs, diet drugs, gastrointestinal medications, hormone replacement therapies, impotence medications, latex products, maxillary-cranial implants, migraine medications, PPA, spinal fixation devices, sutures, urological implants, vascular stents, vitamins, and knee and hip implants.

Many of the leading pharmaceutical and medical device companies in the world have come to rely upon the counseling and skills of our attorneys when their products become the target of litigation. Our attorneys have successfully handled matters from “bet the company” litigation to individual claims in jurisdictions around the country. We have extensive experience in all phases of mass-tort and multidistrict litigation, including complex document review and production, motion practice, lay and expert witness depositions, retention and development of defense experts, pre-trial preparations, and lead trial counsel.
