Very excited to note for readers the arrival this week of a brand new partner in Shook Hardy’s office in Philadelphia (your humble bloggers home base).

Debra S. Dunne, Esq. brings to SHB significant expertise in counseling companies regulated by the Food and Drug Administration.  Areas of expertise include everything from compliance and risk-management issues to labeling and marketing to clinical trials, due diligence, training programs, and product recalls. With experience addressing the intersection of unique litigation risks with government safety and regulatory oversight, Debra can provide exceptional strategic guidance and legal counsel to her drug, medical device, food, and cosmetics industry clients.

She has also defended complex product liability claims and has served as science counsel and coordinating counsel in mass tort litigation. Dunne has also written and spoken extensively on prescription-drug marketing and off-label issues, which is where I first met her as co-presenters at a CLE in 2007.
