Deepening the firm’s commitment to providing a full complement of intellectual property and regulatory counseling services to its clients, Fox Rothschild LLP is pleased to welcome former Associate Chief Counsel of the U.S. Food and Drug Administration Jason W. Sapsin as counsel in the firm’s Denver office. Sapsin joins Fox from Polsinelli Shughart PC, where he led the firm’s FDA practice and will serve in the same capacity at Fox.
