Relevant Experiences

I have over 30 years of experience with specialty medical products, including extensive work with the preparation, associated regulatory submissions and overall conduct of controlled clinical trials. Typical components of these efforts included protocol preparation and formalization, reach-outs to selected medical professionals, assembly of requisite documents such as Informed Consents, monitoring of clinical sites, preparation and summary of clinical data and integration of produced clinical data into documents sent to regulatory authorities. The inherent safety and/or efficacy aspects of particular products have dictated the level of detail, scrutiny, and control required for appropriate clinical data collection and reporting.

My consulting and expert witness experience includes several depositions and providing testimony in jury trial. In addition to my experience with FDA-controlled products, I have consulted on numerous cases involving online product (supplements, for example) advertising, reviewed by the FTC, requiring peer-reviewed, scientific data publication meeting FTC standards. My expert opinions were used in formal court cases.
