Pharmaceutical and Medical Device
Ellis & Winters has established an outstanding reputation in connection with the litigation and trial of pharmaceutical and medical device matters. Our attorneys have defended a variety of prescription medications, including but not limited to, medications used for the treatment of chronic pain, adult-onset diabetes, seizures, erectile dysfunction, bacterial infections, gastro-esophageal reflux disease, and hyperlipidemia. In addition, we have defended a host of medical devices, including breast implant, penile implants, artificial knees, bone screws, cardiac defibrillators, heart valves, surgical sutures, hypodermic syringes and organ bags. We also have an extensive practice defending 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 the identification and development of defense experts, or the design of effective challenges to plaintiffs' experts who depart from sound scientific methodology. Ellis & Winters attorneys are prepared to serve in any capacity as "team players" who seek the best result for the client.
