Butler Snow is pleased to announce that Morgan G. Miranda has joined the firm’s Ridgeland, Miss. office. Miranda will practice with the firm’s pharmaceutical, medical device and healthcare litigation group.
“We welcome Morgan to the Butler Snow team,” said Donald Clark, Jr., chairman of Butler Snow. “Her unique experiences are a valuable asset to our team, and we look forward to her career at Butler Snow.”
Miranda’s previous practice experience involved reviewing depositions in asbestos litigation, researching intricacies of asbestos bankruptcy trusts and assisting in estimating settlement values in asbestos litigation. She also assisted in drafting asbestos bankruptcy trust legislation and developed groundwork for a new practice group in limited English proficiency regulations. Miranda discovered that a number of healthcare providers, particularly pharmacies, were unaware of regulations, potential fines and malpractice suits they might face for noncompliance. After carefully reviewing the regulations, Miranda determined the exact requirements of the various laws and regulations to create an auditing process.
She previously was a career clerk to the Honorable Henry T. Wingate, U.S. District Court of the Southern District of Mississippi.
Miranda earned her undergraduate degree from Grinnell College. She received her Juris Doctor from the University of Iowa. Miranda also researched political power and social reactions to women in Parliament at the University of Botswana. She is a member of the Mississippi Bar.
With increasingly complex regulatory and policy challenges in the pharmaceutical, medical device and healthcare industry, comes the corresponding need for businesses to have at their disposal sound legal guidance and effective counsel to manage ongoing legal exposure and resultant multi-district litigation. Butler Snow’s pharmaceutical, medical device and healthcare industry team provides clients with a comprehensive, multidisciplinary legal team to minimize legal exposure, litigate through resolution, and handle crisis management. Few firms in the United States have been called upon as often as our firm to serve as local, regional or national counsel in significant pharmaceutical, medical device and healthcare cases. Butler Snow’s litigators play leading roles in federal multi-district proceedings and try a broad range of cases, including bellwether cases.
