Pharmaceuticals and Medical Devices

The pharmaceutical and medical device industries are among the most tightly regulated industries in the United States in order to ensure consumer safety. If you are in the pharmaceutical or medical device business and are involved in the design, manufacture or sale of pharmaceuticals and medical devices, it is essential to retain an experienced attorney to help you make smart business choices, comply with relevant laws and minimize the risks of litigation. Likewise, if you are an individual consumer who has been injured or otherwise affected by a pharmaceutical or medical device that did not work as promised, Archer can advocate on your behalf.

At Archer, our knowledgeable attorneys have extensive experience handling pharmaceutical and medical device cases.  We take a multi-disciplinary approach to serving clients, partnering with other legal professionals throughout our 175 attorney firm to provide the most comprehensive legal service.

Pharmaceuticals and Medical Devices: Professional Representation

Those who conduct research, invent or design drugs or medical devices, produce or manufacturer pharmaceutical devices and sell or distribute medical devices must comply with a diverse range of laws and regulations, including Food and Drug Administration (FDA) regulations and consumer protection laws such as those related to advertising issues and warnings of side effects associated with drugs and medical devices. The lawyers at Archer help clients navigate these laws and understand their obligations relating to clinical trials, FDA approval and other regulatory matters.  We assist clients in both ensuring full compliance and documenting that compliance to help insulate against future risk.

The drug and medical device industry is a multi-billion dollar industry with fierce competition.  Therefore, it is important to take steps to protect your intellectual property and trade secrets. Our corporate lawyers draft non-compete and non-disclosure agreements and assist with patented or copyrighting material, as well as licensing matters.

If issues arise related to products produced and sold, our litigation attorneys can vigorously represent your interests, helping you to explore alternatives to litigation or advocating your interests in court.

Consumer Representation

Drug companies and manufacturers of medical devices owe an obligation to consumers under product liability and consumer protection laws. If you have been harmed or injured as a result of a defective medical device or dangerous drug, you may have the opportunity to hold the manufacturer legally accountable. At Archer, we can explain your legal rights and represent your interests.
