We wanted to take a moment to let you know about the Drug and Device Defense Forum coming up on December 13th   It’s a bit of a shameless plug because several of our bloggers will be speaking, not to mention Michelle Yeary is co-chairing the event for the third year.  First a reminder that this conference is only open to the folks on the defense side.  That means the presenters will be able to discuss things that we don’t talk about on the blog because we don’t want to give the other side any bright ideas.  There will be presentations by numerous in-house counsel from major pharmaceutical and device companies, and a bunch of defense side DDL experts.

Eric Alexander is among the group kicking off the morning talking about hot topics in the DDL world.  Then just before lunch hear Bexis and McConnell talk about the continuing battle on preemption.

The agenda also includes topics such as the risk management in the early litigation stage, trial prep strategies, a closer look at voir and jury selection, the new FDA guidance for device manufacturers, and protecting confidential information.  And plenty of CLE credits, including ethics, to be had!

Here is the link for more information and to register.  Still some free seats available for corporate counsel.  Look forward to seeing you there.
