Hear the perspectives from both sides. One of your co-hosts – Bexis (Herrmann couldn’t make it) – leads off a day-long Harris-Martin conference on “Preemption in a Post-Levine World” at the Rittenhouse Hotel in Philadelphia on June 3, 2009.

Sol takes on Covington’s Paul Schmidt later in the day (topic: “How Does This Affect the Pharmaceutical Industry?”).
Other participating firms in addition to Dechert (Joe Hetrick’s the conference co-chair): Reed Smith, Arnold & Porter, King & Spalding, and Pepper Hamilton for our side and Cohen, Placitella, Raynes McCarty, and Seeger Weiss representing the other side of the “v”.
