Hasson Law Group Wins Appeal in Multimillion-Dollar Real Estate Dispute

When a real estate business ended with a fight over a trophy property in an upscale Atlanta location, the minority stakeholder hired the Hasson Law Group to represent his financial interests. Going up against a large international firm, managing partner Keith S. Hasson successfully appealed a summary judgment that had limited his client’s proceeds from the property’s sale and counterclaims for breach of contract and fiduciary duty. As an indication that Hasson’s argument was precisely framed, the appeals court reversed the summary judgment quickly.

The Ultimate Cautionary Tale

The tragic and painful drama of The New England Compounding Center (NECC) came to a dramatic point last week with the conclusion of the criminal trial of its co-founder and chief executive officer. This was the latest chapter in a scandal that has, unfortunately, thrown a negative light on all compounding pharmacies. As the Boston Globe observed, the trial and the scandal “opened a window onto the little-known compounding industry.”

In 2012, fungal meningitis and other infections in twenty states were traced by the CDC to contaminated steroids, used principally to treat back pain, that were produced by NECC. This national outbreak was caused by fungal contamination of three batches of preservation-free methylprednisolone acetate (MPA). Vials of the steroid were shipped to pain management clinics, primarily in Tennessee, Indiana, and Michigan. The fungus-contaminated drugs killed 64 people in nine states. In addition to the 64 deaths, 753 people became seriously ill.

Keith Hasson featured In Pain Medicine News on compounding pharmacy crackdown

As the federal trial of the New England Compounding Center (NECC) continues, Keith Hasson was quoted in Pain Medicine News on Feb. 16, 2017, discussing the ongoing crackdown compounding pharmacies face from the Drug Quality and Security Act.

A recent report from the FDA stated that the administration has issued more than 130 warning letters to compounders over federal violations and overseen about 100 recalls since the law went into effect in 2012. Hasson notes that the report “reads like a document trying to justify (the FDA’s) efforts in the compounding pharmacy space, and they make a pretty good case.” For the full article, please click here.
