Jonathan S. Tam, Counsel
Jonathan S. Tam advises clients in mass tort and product liability litigation with an emphasis on the pharmaceutical and medical device manufacturing industries in cases filed by individual plaintiffs, State Attorneys Generals, municipalities, and third-party payors.
He is an experienced litigator and trusted advisor. He has led, managed, and handled various aspects of complex, nationwide litigations in state and federal courts, including developing and implementing case strategy, arguing dispositive motions, working with expert witnesses, taking and defending fact and expert depositions, and going to trial.
He has extensive experience drafting briefs at both the trial and appellate levels, and in particular, briefs concerning the admissibility of expert testimony under Daubert. He was key member of teams that secured the dismissal of plaintiffs’ general causation testimony under Daubert and the entry of summary judgment for a pharmaceutical manufacturer in two major mass torts, and also helped draft the briefs that ultimately cemented those victories in the federal appellate courts. See In re Lipitor (Atorvastatin Calcium) Mktg., Sales Practices & Prod. Liab. Litig. (No II) MDL 2502, 892 F.3d 624, 631 (4th Cir. 2018); In re Zoloft (Sertraline Hydrochloride) Prod. Liab. Litig., 858 F.3d 787 (3d Cir. 2017). These Daubert decisions are routinely cited by courts and parties around the country.
