Testimonials

‘The team is very focused on understanding client business and legal needs. Deep expertise in pharma. Experienced with the key plaintiff’s lawyers.’

‘The best in the business are Nina Gussack, Tom Gallagher, Barry Boise, Andy Kantra and Sean Fahey.’

‘The strength of the team stems from the Pepper Hamilton merger and adding the Troutman team will add to and enhance that team. ‘

‘They very much have a unique approach to looking at the resolution of a large litigation at the very beginning when planning the strategy. They have been at the forefront of document review through “predictive coding”. They produce high quality work product.’

‘I have worked with many Pepper Hamilton attorneys over the years. Nina Gussack has been a trailblazer. She is stepping back a bit but the group is in great hands with Sean Fahey as the group’s head. Sean is a strategic thinker, a zealous advocate (when strategically it’s called for) and an extremely practical lawyer looking for solutions, not reasons to fight. Barry Boise is a very high quality lawyer who excels at science issues, strategy and being a tough negotiator. Ronnie Fuchs is very good at working with experts and mastering the science.’
