Bioethics and Clinical Trials Litigation

The Firm has earned a national reputation in bioethics and clinical trials litigation. The Firm's pioneering success in these rapidly evolving arenas has been chronicled in numerous books, articles, and media reports.

In recent cases, we have represented: - The family of a young man killed in a gene therapy experiment.

  • Subjects participating in clinical trials conducted at research facilities of major institutions and universities.
  • Parkinson's patients seeking access to an experimental drug.
  • Veterans injured in unethical experiments conducted at the VA Hospital in Albany, New York.

Because of our recognized expertise, we have been called on to consult with and advise major institutions, IRBs, and physician groups about the conduct of, and requirements for, research on human subjects.

This highly specialized, high profile practice is headed by Alan Milstein, who has published peer-reviewed articles in prestigious academic journals on bioethics issues and by invitation, has made presentations on bioethics to major research institutions and organizations throughout the country.
