Opioid Litigation
Opioid Litigation
Kelley Drye’s Pharmaceutical Litigation Team is monitoring the related legal developments affecting manufacturers and distributors of opioids and preparing advisories detailing precautionary steps that can be taken at the pre-litigation stage, in addition to considering how best to craft the most viable defenses.
According to almost every major media outlet, America is now in the midst of an opioid addiction crisis. One of the newer symptoms of this so-called “Opioid Epidemic,” however, is a rash of litigation targeting pharmaceutical manufacturers and distributors.  

Our attorneys have a deep understanding of the generic pharmaceutical industry, earned by a two decade partnership working alongside generic companies, and a strong knowledge of marketing, distribution, pricing practices, the inner workings of third party payors, and the competitive landscape.
