Two members of Reed Smith’s Life Sciences Health Industry (LSHI) group will be speaking at the American Conference Institute’s 3rd Annual Conference on Women Leaders in Life Sciences Law taking place in Boston on July 27-29, 2016.

On July 28, Reed Smith partner and co-chair of the firm’s LSHI group, Melissa A. Geist will discuss some of the most cutting-edge legal challenges in the life sciences space in a panel entitled, “What Women Leaders in Life Sciences Law Must Know About Products Liability, Mass Torts, and ‘Bet-the-Company’ Litigation.” On July 29, Reed Smith partner Gail L. Daubert will be speaking on building a pricing and reimbursement strategy during the panel presentation, “Key Regulatory and Pricing Developments Affecting How Life Sciences Companies Bring Products to Market.”

The “Women Leaders in Life Sciences Law” event was created to increase the prominence of women in the life sciences legal community through substantive legal discussion, professional development and woman-to-woman networking. This year’s program features an impressive lineup of women leaders throughout the life sciences community poised to discuss key legal developments for pharmaceutical, biotech and medical device companies as well as engage in candid discussion of gender stereotypes and other implicit obstacles to advancement.
