Miles & Stockbridge combines extensive knowledge of medical issues, exceptional and leading-edge expert witness resources and nationally recognized catastrophic injury litigation experience with aggressive trial advocacy to provide full-service, 360-degree legal counsel to our clients. We focus on protecting the interest of medical product, health care and medical malpractice clients facing their toughest challenges—when they are at their most vulnerable. Our lawyers bring a deep understanding of the complex issues involved in the medical and health care arena, as well as an aptitude for clearly communicating the pertinent data—and the stakes involved—to lay audiences in board rooms and courtrooms across the country.
Our lawyers defend health care institutions and professionals facing claims of professional negligence, including cases involving catastrophic injuries or deaths brought in some of the most challenging jurisdictions in the country. We have substantial experience defending product liability claims made against pharmaceutical and medical device companies, and we counsel clients on toxicity studies and Phase 1, 2 and 3 clinical trials.
Our risk management lawyers perform assessments and liability analysis, with the goal of proactively advising clients on complex matters before they become a problem. When litigation ensues, though, our defense lawyers’ thorough understanding of Daubert/Frye-Reed standards helps protect our clients from pseudo-scientific allegations and assertions. As a vigorous advocate, Miles & Stockbridge defines success in the context of each client’s business goals and interests, using the full breadth of the firm’s collective experience across disciplines to efficiently and effectively advocate for our clients.
