DLA Piper’s Brown Named to 2016 list of Litigation Trailblazers

Loren Brown, co-chair of DLA Piper’s global and U.S. Litigation practices, has been named to The National Law Journal‘s 2016 list of Litigation Trailblazers. This annual list recognizes the top 50 legal professionals who have changed the way litigation is practiced.

In a news release, the firm said Brown was selected for his novel use of scientific (Daubert) and preemption defenses to dismiss all or very large parts of multiple pharmaceutical mass tort litigations involving many thousands of claims, which resulted in an avoidance of jury trials and ensured important therapies remain on the market for millions of patients.

The release continues:

His business litigation practice includes a range of commercial tort and contract, trade secret, intellectual property and securities class action matters. Brown also has significant experience in a range of internal investigation and compliance matters, particularly within the biopharmaceutical and life sciences sectors.

In addition, he regularly counsels clients on regulatory, risk management, due-diligence, product labeling, product recall, public disclosure, policy and crisis-management issues.
