Pepper Hamilton Creates Cross-Discipline Health Sciences Department, To Be Headed by Nina Gussack

Department will provide integrated legal services to pharmaceutical, life science and health care clients

Innovative Shift in Service Delivery Model in Response to Client Needs, Pepper Says

Pepper Hamilton today announced the creation of a new Health Sciences Department. The firm will combine several of its premier practice areas – Health Effects Litigation, Health Care, Life Sciences, Intellectual Property and White Collar/Government Investigations – in order to better serve clients in the health sciences industry.

The new department will be led by Pepper’s former chairwoman, Nina M. Gussack, a nationally recognized leader in health sciences litigation and counseling. More than 110 of the firm’s lawyers will be in the new department. Health Sciences presently constitutes more than 40 percent of the firm’s revenues.

Leading partners from the firm’s Commercial, Intellectual Property and Litigation departments have formed a Steering Committee to drive the group’s strategy and operations. Collectively, the committee has decades of experience advising clients across the health sciences spectrum.

The new department will serve a diverse range of clients throughout the health care supply chain who develop, patent, license, manufacture, market or sell pharmaceuticals, medical devices or other health-related therapies and who deliver or support the delivery of health care services.
