The defense of cases filed against the manufacturers and distributors of medical devices and products requires adapting to an ever-changing regulatory environment as well as a commitment to understanding the technology inherent in each product’s design, use and function. The attorneys of Sutter O’Connell meet the challenge of providing an aggressive yet cost efficient defense by combining the resources of our product liability, medical malpractice, intellectual property and commercial litigation attorneys. We counsel our medical products clients as early as appropriate in the lifetime of a case to evaluate the risks inherent in every such lawsuit and to design a strategy to minimize those risks.
Sutter O’Connell attorneys have defended and managed litigation involving cardiac defibrillators, catheters, retinal implants, orthopedic devices, dietary supplements, venal and arterial stents and de-clogging devices. Working closely with our clients and leading national experts allows us to make an objective evaluation of every case and to counsel our clients toward solving problems—whether through negotiation, mediation, arbitration, or trial.
