Former U.S. Department of Justice deputy assistant attorney general Gerald F. Masoudi was appointed chief counsel for the U.S. Food and Drug Administration. Masoudi’s official title is chief counsel of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services’ Food and Drug Division, which handles FDA legal matters. Masoudi was previously in charge of international, policy and appellate matters in the justice department’s antitrust division, but he was on the Food and Drug Division’s legal team from 2004-2005. “We are pleased to have Jerry’s expertise and insight back at HHS,” said Commissioner of Food and Drugs Andrew C. von Eschenbach. “His leadership and service will be critical to FDA’s public health mission and regulatory responsibilities.” Prior to working for the government, Masoudi was a partner at Chicago-based Kirkland & Ellis.
