Christopher J. Casolaro protects and defends clients in product liability and commercial litigation. With experience in medical device and pharmaceutical matters at different critical stages – including litigation, criminal investigation, and FDA regulatory – Chris has the perspective and tools to help clients through every step of the pre-litigation and litigation process.
