Trial Lawyer Advertising Can Fuel Life Sciences Litigation, Attorneys Say

Two attorneys with the DLA Piper law firm say trial lawyer advertising, combined with lower standards for mass tort lawsuits, can fuel litigation against the life sciences industry.

Saher Valiani and Matthew Holian wrote in Law360 that the rise of social media and big data “litigation frequently precedes — and even precipitates — regulatory scrutiny,” meaning that lawsuits are filed before companies can get legal clarity from government agencies. The “accessibility of real-world data, social media and post-marketing adverse event reporting” makes building massive cases easier “before the FDA can evaluate all the available evidence.”
