  • Trial Lawyer Advertising Can Fuel Life Sciences Litigation, Attorneys Say

Saher Valiani and Matthew Holian wrote in Law360 that the rise of social media and big data “litigation frequently precedes — and even precipitates — regulatory scrutiny,” meaning that lawsuits are filed before companies can get legal clarity from government agencies. The “accessibility of real-world data, social media and post-marketing adverse event reporting” makes building massive cases easier “before the FDA can evaluate all the available evidence.”
