Jane has more than 20 years of experience defending major pharmaceutical and medical device manufacturers in product liability matters. She has guided strategy in all aspects of trial preparation, produced company witnesses, and deposed experts and key prescribing and treating physicians in bellwether cases.
One of Jane’s specialties is creative dispositive motion victories, including an undefeated record in oral arguments before the Fifth, Eighth and Eleventh Circuit Courts of Appeals. Jane has obtained dismissals after convincing courts that product recalls do not equate to a defect under the law, and she has significant experience with the issues of Daubert, the learned intermediary doctrine, and the preemption of claims against manufacturers of prescription medical devices.
Jane also has unique experience managing and coordinating resources, particularly for fast-track matters, multidistrict and other high-volume litigation, with an emphasis on developing case and data management procedures that provide greater efficiencies and cost-savings for her clients. Jane’s clients also value the service she routinely provides in assisting them with their litigation-related business needs, including avoiding business disruptions, financial reserve and trending analyses, auditor requests, SEC disclosures, insurer updates and coverage issues, preservation policies and risk assessments.
