Pharmarisc Is Back

Dear Pharmarisc readers:

My sincere apologies for my long absence and lack of blogging these past several months.  Unfortunately, pressing work and family obligations and making the transition from a big, mostly IP, law firm to a small law firm boutique in Boston (Laredo & Smith, LLP), absorbed much of my time and prevented me from writing and commenting upon news affecting the life sciences and healthcare industries. Now that I’ve settled into my new compliance and white collar defense law practice, I will do my best to blog with the type of regularity Pharmarisc readers recall and have come to expect.  Moreover, because the focus of my practice now includes more traditional white collar work and compliance counseling, expect Pharmarisc to go beyond the life sciences industry and cover Medicare/Medicaid fraud and other white collar topics.

I also want to recognize and thank Vinita Banthia, a law student in Minnesota, for helping me with research for the next few posts.
