Chicago partner Bill Essig participated on a panel at the ABA’s “Current Issues in Pharmaceutical, Medical Device and Biotech Litigation” regional workshop on November 4 at GlaxoSmithKline in the Philadelphia Navy Yard.

Bill appeared on the panel with the Honorable Cynthia M. Rufe of the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Pennsylvania, vice president and associate general counsel Brennan J. Torregrossa of GSK, and others to discuss expert witness and Daubert issues in drug and medical device MDL litigation.

With the assistance of Chicago associate Elizabeth C. Christen, Bill co-authored a paper for the panel, “A Review of Notable Daubert Opinions from Recent Drug and Medical Device MDLs,” which surveyed selected Daubert opinions from recent drug and medical device MDLs since 2014.

Drinker Biddle also sponsored a reception in the office for attendees of this workshop and the ABA’s Women in Products Liability meeting.
