Two Former FDA Attorneys Join Arnall Golden Gregory’s Food and Drug Practice

ATLANTA – Arnall Golden Gregory’s Food and Drug Practice is pleased to announce that two attorneys with significant FDA experience have joined the team – Seth Ray and Christine Kirk.

Seth is of counsel and formerly served as an attorney and manager in the Office of Chief Counsel at FDA (OCC) for 24 years. At OCC he was an Associate Chief Counsel for Drugs, providing advice to the Center for Drugs (CDER) and other parts of FDA, and then was Associate Deputy Chief Counsel for Drugs and Biologics, managing the drugs and biologics attorney counseling teams and serving as senior counsel on all prescription drug advertising/promotion matters.

Christine is an associate who formerly worked as a Regulatory Counsel in CDER’s Office of Regulatory Policy (ORP). At ORP she advised on a wide variety of matters, including regulations, guidance, citizen petitions and policy development. Christine also has experience reviewing comments on proposed regulations and guidance.

Seth and Christine will be working out of AGG’s Washington office. Team leader Alan Minsk said the addition of two former FDA attorneys will be of great benefit to clients seeking FDA product approval.

“Having Seth and Christine on board enhances our ability to efficiently resolve for our clients the challenges presented in the FDA review process,” Alan said. “They will offer our clients unique insights into agency thinking and decision-making.”
