Paul J. Pennock is the Chief of the Pharmaceutical and Medical Device litigation department at Weitz & Luxenberg and the firm’s lead litigator in that area.
Litigation Leadership Roles: Mr. Pennock is currently trying the first of what could turn out to be thousands of Fosamax femur fracture cases. Weitz & Luxenberg is taking the lead in a national litigation against Merck, the manufacturer of Fosamax, and Pennock is at the helm. Pennock has been invested in pre-trial preparations, and will now turn his attention to jury selection and Weitz & Luxenberg's evidentiary case. With hundreds of hours already devoted to the case, Pennock said plenty of hard work was still to come. "When my six-year-old says, 'I can't wait until this trial is over,' you know trials are a lot of work," Pennock said.
