What was your route to the top? Pretty traditional. I worked as a summer associate in a large NJ firm known for its litigation practice. I deferred their offer of employment to begin as an associate after graduation in favor of a clerkship for a NJ state court Judge which paid less than half of what the firm was offering! Clerking was a tremendous experience after which I returned to the firm as a litigation associate working on medical malpractice and product liability cases. 5½ years later, the opportunity to go in-house at Johnson & Johnson presented itself and I never looked back. My practice at J&J morphed over the last three decades from managing single consumer, pharmaceutical and medical device products liability cases, to working also on employment matters, sitting on operating company management boards, handling AG consumer fraud cases and supervising and directing a large team of outside counsel assisting us in the defense of mass tort litigation.
