Few industries in the United States face as many lawsuits as the pharmaceutical industry, whether related to prescription drugs, medical devices, nutraceuticals or other therapies. These personal injury cases often are filed as class actions, and the lawyers at Donohue Brown have extensive experience in defeating class certification and delivering favorable defense results.
Our experience dates back to defending the makers of the Dalkon Shield, still one of the largest pharmaceutical class actions in U.S. history. In the past 20 years, we have successfully represented numerous pharmaceutical companies in a variety of mass tort matters and other complex personal injury cases around the country, either as lead counsel or local or regional counsel based in Chicago. We also handle commercial litigation and other business disputes involving various players in the pharmaceutical industry.
DBMS attorneys continue to work remotely in compliance with the Governor's ongoing shelter in place order and to ensure the safety of our clients, employees and colleagues. In addition to focusing on the work entrusted to us by our clients before the Covid-19 pandemic, we are assisting our clients in protecting medical caregivers from being compelled to turn away from their patients to participate in litigation activities that can wait until the virus is under control.
We salute the medical providers who are valiantly risking their personal safety for the benefit of all of us. Thank you. You are heroes.
