San Francisco Counsel Krista Cosner co-chaired and spoke at the ABA’s Pharmaceutical and Medical Device Litigation Workshop on Friday, Nov. 16, 2012.

This annual event draws more than 100 lawyers from around the country and was held this year at Boston Scientific in Natick, Massachusetts. 

The various panels discussed issues related to biopharmaceuticals, government fraud claims, pre-trial litigation assessment, hot topics related to medical devices and retention and contact with treating physicians. 

In addition to co-chairing the meeting, Krista also spoke on a panel regarding biopharmaceuticals and discussed how these products, as compared to chemical-based drugs, will likely impact the defense of product liability cases. 

As a result of her successful efforts chairing this meeting, Krista was asked by the ABA Products Liability Committee Chairman to co-chair the ABA Pharmaceutical Subcommittee next year.
