With an analytical frame of mind stemming from an undergraduate degree in mechanical engineering, Ron Dhindsa is best known as “the Science Guy.” His appreciation for the art of defending science leads him to stay abreast of emerging science issues to anticipate cause and effect relationships and optimize the interests of the firm’s clients in both pending and prospective litigation.

Focusing primarily in the areas of toxic tort and pharmaceutical products liability defense, Ron represents clients in both state and federal courts in multi-billion dollar products liability cases, including pharmaceutical class actions and multidistrict litigation. His successes include extinguishing the claims of thousands of class action opt-outs in nationwide pharmaceutical products liability litigation, defeating a proposed $18 billion dental monitoring class action, and securing summary judgment and dismissals in a number of recent products liability actions.

Ron thoughtfully directs the scientific defense strategy related to complex medical and scientific issues in nationwide litigation. He manages all aspects of expert witness development and strategy relating to Daubert hearings and trials, and has appeared at multiple hearings, taken and defended expert and fact witness depositions, drafted Daubert and other litigation-shaping motions, and worked in every facet of trial preparation. Good with people and relational in his approach makes Ron a natural when it comes to effectively preparing key witnesses and experts. In fact, he has worked with some of the world’s leading experts in:

  • Food and Drug Administration regulations
  • agriculture
  • bone biology
  • cardiology
  • chemistry
  • economics
  • epidemiology
  • industrial hygiene
  • oncology
  • oral medicine
  • osteoporosis
  • pathology
  • pharmacology
  • preclinical and clinical trials
  • pulmonology
  • surgery
  • toxicology

As a regular attendee of national and international scientific meetings, Ron is invited to lecture around the world on the impact of tort litigation with a particular focus on the intersection between law and science. Among other venues, he has presented at the following:

  • 50th Anniversary of Bisphosphonates, Sheffield, United Kingdom
  • 5th, 6th and 7th International Workshops for Advances in the Molecular Pharmacology and Therapeutics of Bone Disease, Oxford University
  • International Osteoporosis Foundation, Geneva, Switzerland
  • American Conference Institute’s Summit on Brain Injury Claims & Litigation
  • 19th Annual International Clinical Densitometry Workshop
  • 26th Annual Meeting of the Metabolic Bone Disease Society of Colorado

Ron’s enduring passion for inspiring and motivating others to greatness and transforming youth and adults into catalysts for positive change has led to his extraordinary dedication of time and talent to leadership development. Since 1985, Ron has empowered and inspired Maryland youth and teachers to realize their human and leadership potential through various educational organizations he has led, including Maryland Leadership Workshops, Inc., Leadership Maryland, and the Maryland Association of Student Councils.
