Neil S. Bromberg’s practice focuses on the overall defense of serial, mass tort, and other complex litigation matters, with a particular emphasis on defending – and trying – pharmaceutical products liability litigation. On behalf of Novartis Pharmaceuticals Corporation, Mr. Bromberg currently manages the defense of 142 cases as part of a consolidated litigation in New Jersey involving claims that Novartis’s bisphosphonate drugs used in cancer therapies cause a "signature disease" known as osteonecrosis of the jaw ("ONJ"). On May 15 of this year, he secured a 7-1 defense verdict for Firm client Novartis Pharmaceuticals Corporation in the second bellwether case chosen for trial in the New Jersey litigation over the drugs Aredia® and Zometa®. Meng v. Novartis Pharm. Corp., No. MID-L-7670-07-MT (N.J. Super. Ct. Law Div. May 15, 2013). After deliberating for fewer than six hours, the Meng jury rejected the plaintiff’s failure-to-warn claim. Mr. Bromberg also won the first bellwether trial in the New Jersey consolidated litigation in 2010. Bessemer v. Novartis Pharm. Corp., MID-L-1835-08-MT (N.J. Super. Ct. Law Div. Oct. 22, 2010), aff'd, No. L-1835-08, 2012 WL 2120777 (N.J. Super. Ct. App. Div. June 13, 2012).

Mr. Bromberg has significant experience defending and deposing expert witnesses in various fields, including oncology, oral surgery, neurology, obstetrics, pharmacology, and internal medicine. This experience extends beyond the deposition stage, where he specializes in designing and implementing strategies to exclude (or limit) expert testimony through motions practice or evidentiary hearings pursuant to Daubert, Kemp, and similar admissibility standards.

Mr. Bromberg has extensive toxic tort experience, having previously represented gasoline manufacturers in personal injury and wrongful death litigation involving alleged exposure to benzene.

Mr. Bromberg has spoken at public and private seminars on a variety of issues including e-discovery and scientific evidence. He is a past co-chair of the December 2006 Mealey’s Benzene Litigation Conference. He previously served on the Steering Committee and was the Internet Coordinator of the Litigation Section of the Bar Association for the District of Columbia, and was also Chair of the Publications Committee and Vice Chair of the Programs Committee. Additionally, he has served as a member of the Continuing Legal Education Committee of the D.C. Bar's Board of Governors. Mr. Bromberg was nominated to run for the position of D.C. Representative to the ABA House of Delegates in 2001. In 2006, he served as an appellate judge for the American Bar Association's National Appellate Advocacy Competition. Mr. Bromberg is a member of the Defense Research Institute.

How do I choose a lawyer?

Consider the following:

Comfort Level
- Are you comfortable telling the lawyer personal information? Does the lawyer seem interested in solving your problem?

Credentials
- How long has the lawyer been in practice? Has the lawyer worked on other cases similar to yours?

Cost
- How are the lawyer's fees structured - hourly or flat fee? Can the lawyer estimate the cost of your case?

City
- Is the lawyer's office conveniently located?

Not sure what questions to ask a lawyer?

Here are a few to get you started:

  • How long have you been in practice?
  • How many cases like mine have you handled?
  • How often do you settle cases out of court?
  • What are your fees and costs?
  • What are the next steps?

Want to check lawyer discipline?

It is always a good idea to research your lawyer prior to hiring. Every state has a disciplinary organization that monitors attorneys, their licenses, and consumer complaints. By researching lawyer discipline you can:

  • Ensure the attorney is currently licensed to practice in your state
  • Gain an understanding of his or her historical disciplinary record, if any.
  • Determine the seriousness of complaints/issues which could range from late bar fees to more serious issues requiring disciplinary action.
