In addition to the firm’s attorneys, we have several notable experts joining as guest speakers this year, including Derek Yach, the former World Health Organization lead on the development of the Framework Convention on Tobacco Control, as well as leading scientific thought leaders Willie McKinney, Ph.D., Christopher Russell, Ph.D., and Ian Fearon, Ph.D.
