Wheeler Trigg O'Donnell represents healthcare clients in claims involving professional liability and product liability resulting in serious injury and wrongful death. We also handle high-stakes business disputes and antitrust matters for organizations and individuals working in specialized fields across the healthcare and life sciences industries. 

Our clients include healthcare professionals, health systems—including university health systems— as well as institutions and companies, as well as their vendors, service providers, and insurers. With a robust medical devices and pharmaceuticals practice, WTO routinely represents life sciences, biotech, and pharmaceutical companies and their distributors in complex, highly charged litigation. 

We are regularly retained on the eve of trial to try difficult cases involving serious physical injuries or death, often in plaintiff-friendly jurisdictions, when prior resolution strategies or trial preparations have not achieved the desired results.

Technical and Practical Knowledge
WTO employs several full-time physician consultants and nurse-paralegals who have experience in the daily practice of medicine and health-related businesses. These professionals bring tremendous practical knowledge to our teams and help identify issues and opportunities related to our clients' cases. 

All this knowledge helps our teams communicate effectively with professionals in medicine, engineering, the sciences, and other areas to prepare for trial and develop persuasive briefs and courtroom demonstratives. We are always thinking about how critical, complex aspects of a case may be simplified for judges and jurors who may not be familiar with the subject area, and we develop themes that weave those key points together and make them meaningful and memorable for our audiences.
