The April 12, 2012, Bloomberg Businessweek article “Fried Frank, O’Melveny & Myers, Mayer Brown: Business of Law,” reports on O’Melveny & Myers LLP’s expansion of the Health Care and Life Sciences Practice with the recent addition of Ross Galin. Galin is a counsel in O’Melveny’s New York and a member of the Health Care and Life Sciences and White Collar Defense and Corporate Investigations Practices. Galin commented in the article that defense work for pharmaceutical and device makers continues to grow. “It’s a challenging time for people in this industry,” he said. “Over the last few years, for example, we’ve seen some large settlements by pharmaceutical companies.” Building on Galin’s response, David Deaton, co-chairman of the Firm’s Health Care and Life Sciences Practice, said “there are multiple pipelines” of work, citing false-claims cases, government investigations and class-action suits, adding “It’s a very vibrant” area. Deaton resides in the Firm’s Los Angeles office.
