Michael Casady represents core clients, including major global pharmaceuticals companies, agricultural companies, and railroads. Michael embraces the grind and excels at analyzing and breaking down the voluminous data inherent in modern litigation. Those who work with him agree that what he does, he does very well.
Michael has wide-ranging litigation experience, including work in motions practices, having drafted and supported numerous successful dispositive motions in multiple pharmaceutical litigations. Possessing extensive experience with the discovery process from beginning to end, he meets with and interviews corporate clients at the onset of litigation to identify important corporate custodians, witnesses, and internal databases needed to facilitate the discovery process. Michael has also managed and directed day-to-day operations in a large-scale eDiscovery project, supervising a team of over 30 attorneys tasked with the identification, review, and production of tens of millions of pages of electronic documents.
Michael works to understand the medical science at the heart of all complex pharmaceutical litigation. He uses this knowledge in drafting discovery requests and responses, and in drafting reports on plaintiff medical records to identify legally and medically important information used to support defense theories and motions. This understanding also serves him in consultations with expert witnesses to develop facts and theories instrumental in supporting causation defenses.
In addition to his participation in numerous depositions of plaintiffs and their treating physicians, Michael has coordinated the deposition scheduling of hundreds of treating physicians in a complex multidistrict litigation.
Michael uses his legal expertise in a range of pro bono and civic areas. He has secured Social Security benefits for indigent clients, and every Election Day, finds him working at polling sites across Virginia to protect and defend the rights of all voters to make their voices heard.
Not only is Michael a history buff for the firm, he is a history buff in general and enjoys the richness that Washington, D.C. has to offer. Known to intentionally travel without an itinerary, he does so to ensure the ability to explore and unlock adventures he might not otherwise experience.
