Our clients include pharmaceutical and medical device companies of all sizes, from start-up to multinational businesses, many of which are traded on NYSE, NASDAQ, and foreign-trading exchanges. We work with innovator and generic companies that manufacture both prescription and over-the-counter pharmaceuticals, representing all therapeutic areas.
With a client base of more than 100 pharmaceutical and medical device companies throughout the United States and a number based outside of the U.S., we’re known for our pragmatic, creative, and cost-efficient approach to client work. In addition, with lawyers on our team who previously worked at the Food and Drug Administration, we are able to provide clients with an insiders’ view of the regulatory process. We pride ourselves on balancing regulatory objectives with each client’s real-world business considerations to identify and implement the best holistic solution possible.
We help pharmaceutical and medical device companies navigate the FDA regulatory process from initial clinical trial development to product approval, product promotion, post-approval requirements, and management. Merely as examples, our lawyers work on orphan drug matters, Breakthrough Therapy Designation requests, clinical trial agreements, quality agreement reviews, import/export issues, Citizen Petition inquiries or market exclusivity and patent certification questions, pharmacy compounding issues, combination product jurisdictional questions, and Good Manufacturing Practice-compliance matters.
AGG lawyers help clients on corporate transactions involving FDA-regulated products. We prepare Regulatory Opinion Letters for securities filing and those regulatory sections involving FDA regulation and regulatory risks. We also conduct due diligence on potential investments, product or company acquisitions, co-promotion, licensing and distribution agreements, and other commercial transactions.
We advise clients with federal and state compliance and enforcement issues, and we counsel on related issues that affect the industry, such as privacy, fraud and abuse, state gift reporting, and trademarks and copyright laws. Clients also trust our advice on regulatory matters involving the Drug Enforcement Administration, the Federal Trade Commission, as well as State Boards of Pharmacy and other state regulatory bodies.
We have decades-long strong relationships with the pharmaceutical and medical device industries and we’re committed to maintaining these relationships for decades to come. We currently serve as General Counsel to the Sharing Alliance, Inc. (formerly the PDMA Alliance) and our attorneys are founding members of Georgia Bio (Georgia’s Life Science trade association), teachers of food and drug law at Emory University School of Law, and lecturers at programs sponsored by the Food and Drug Law Institute and the Regulatory Affairs Professionals Society. Our attorneys also serve on the editorial boards of three national FDA and regulatory periodicals, and on the Board of the National Health Museum. We are also recognized by leading rankings institutions including Chambers USA, Who’s Who in Legal Life Science and Best Lawyers.
