With nearly 20 years’ experience navigating the complex and niche practice of medical device law, Hogan Lovells partner Jodi Scott has accomplished a great deal, and 2017 is no exception for her.
Scott is a food and drug attorney specializing in medical devices. She works with companies as they seek approval for devices from the Food and Drug Administration. She helps walk them through the legal boundaries around marketing and promotion, regulatory concerns and handling different risk factors. She started at Hogan Lovells as an associate in the firm’s Washington, D.C., office in 1998.
Scott appreciates that challenges and unique areas outside the law that her practice intersects with such as healthcare, technology, mechanics and physiology, and business. She likes that each new client presents a unique puzzle to solve.
“Any time you tackle a problem for a client, it’s never the same solution. There’s no ‘This is how we do it, this is always how we do it.’ It’s a ‘Here’s the 27 different ways we can do this, let’s talk about which one is going to work, and in order to do that, I need a lot of information,’” she said.
