For almost three decades, Nathan’s practice has been focused on defense of product liability suits, primarily involving prescriptions and over-the-counter medications, medical devices, and exposures to toxic substances from product and environmental sources. He has been involved in some of the most prominent cases involving hormone therapy, PPA, Rezulin, and other oral anti-diabetic medications, anti-depressants, and silicone gel. Nathan’s expertise involves a heavy emphasis on the scientific and medico-issues that often dominate toxic tort litigation cases. He has challenged a wide variety of expert witnesses, including scientists and physicians, testifying on behalf of the claimants, on immunology, epidemiology, toxicology, polymer and analytical chemistry, rheumatology, neuropsychology, and other areas of clinical medicine.
Nathan has tried over 40 cases, more than 12 Daubert hearings, and has briefed and argued appeals in New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Oregon, and New York, as well as the U.S. Court of Appeals. He has achieved the highest ranking, AV Preeminent®, from Martindale-Hubbell®, and has been named a Super Lawyer. Nathan teaches a course in statistics in the law at Columbia Law School.
