Hagens Berman vigorously pursues litigation that improves the quality and fairness of our healthcare and prescription drug system. Our firm brings more than 20 years of work in this area of practice and vigorously pursues litigation that improves the quality and fairness of our healthcare and prescription drug system. Hagens Berman seeks to shine the light of public scrutiny on Big Pharma and its practices. Representing classes of consumers, state and local governments and the nation's most forward-thinking public-interest groups, we seek to shine the light of public scrutiny on these industries and their practices.
Some of the areas covered by our practice include:
Off-label marketing: Federal law prohibits companies from marketing medical devices or drugs for uses not approved by the Food and Drug Administration. We have negotiated a number of major settlements in this area, recovering funds for consumers as well as state Medicaid plans, which purchased the drugs for purposes not endorsed by the FDA.
Personal injury: When pharmaceutical or compounding companies are negligent in releasing and distributing dangerous drugs to the public, we take legal action, pursuing justice for patients.
Pricing fraud: We have negotiated over a billion dollars in settlements on behalf of clients, including consumers and governments, who we alleged overpaid for drugs due to price-inflation schemes. No firm in the world matches our experience in this arena.

At the basis of all that motivates Hagens Berman is our mission to help those in need. It’s through our work that we continue to uphold and fight for the rights of those most vulnerable.
