Adverse regulatory enforcement actions can cost FDA-regulated and life science companies millions to hundreds of millions of dollars. There are many theories on how to approach the development of FDA responses; however, one thing is clear: if you do not possess both a deep understanding of the enforcement process, and a practical, nuanced understanding of FDA’s requirements and expectations, your responses will miss their mark!

Further, enforcement responses are potentially only the beginning of a long, protracted negotiation with FDA regarding their view of operational changes that need to be implemented by your company. In order to negotiate with FDA and achieve the best outcomes, you need deeply experienced Counsel — that knows not only the law — but that understands the technical and operational context of the enforcement, and can distill response and remediation strategies and approaches from complex and difficult subject matter.
