Timothy Clark, simply Tim to friends, is a third generation trial lawyer admitted to the California Bar. He recently joined the law firm of Sanders Viener Grossman, LLP, and the mass tort firm Sanders Phillips Grossman, LLC. He received his J.D. from the University of San Diego School of Law and graduated with honors from Chapman University.
Mr. Clark began his legal career with a large, defense-oriented law firm, which provided him with invaluable insight. He transitioned to the Plaintiff’s Bar by joining the prestigious LA-based trial firm Engstrom, Lipscomb & Lack focusing much of his time over those years on pharmaceutical and medical device litigation. He has exercised leadership roles in all facets of litigation in coordinated proceedings, with a particular focus on developing the building blocks to establish General Causation, which is often times the most difficult obstacle to hurdle in a pharmaceutical case.
Mr. Clark has extensive knowledge of medical device and pharmaceutical regulations. Specifically, Mr. Clark has working knowledge of pharmaceutical product pre-approval development, with detailed understanding on Non-Clinical Studies and Clinical Trials, and post-approval obligations and requirements, including Safety Surveillance and Pharmacovigilance and ongoing Clinical Trials. His understanding of the FDA-drug sponsor relationship enables him to tailor successful strategies and arguments in discovery battles in order to procure materials Plaintiffs and their experts need to get the job done.
Mr. Clark has developed experts spanning from molecular biology and non-clinical animal modeling and scale up to oncology and pathology to epidemiology, biostatistics, and meta-analysis. His experience and perspective helps him tailor his approach to each case to secure the best result for his clients. His areas of practice include products liability, pharmaceutical and medical device litigation, mass tort litigation, personal injury, insurance bad faith, and civil litigation. When not advocating for his clients, Tim spends his time with his wife Ashley and daughter Kirra and surfs as much as possible.
