Amin Talati Upadhye Opens D.C. Office

Amin Talati Upadhye is thrilled to announce our latest expansion: Ivan Wasserman has joined the firm as Partner and will manage our new Washington, D.C. office.

One of the nation’s premier attorneys for health, wellness, beauty and other consumer products, Ivan guides companies of all sizes through the complex regulatory mazes of the FDA, FTC and CPSC. His deep knowledge, industry experience and creative approaches help companies solve their most difficult marketing, product safety, and government enforcement challenges. He brings to our firm years of experience gained at some of the country’s leading law firms where he represented brand name manufacturers, direct-to-consumer marketers, and retail chains in product development, advertising and labeling, product safety and recalls.

“Our work with numerous regulatory agencies governing the food and drug industries makes it imperative that we maintain a daily presence in the nation’s capital,” said Rakesh Amin, a founding partner. “I can think of no better partner than Ivan Wasserman to lead Amin Talati Upadhye’s new office in the District of Columbia. Ivan has years of experience representing manufacturers, direct-to-consumer marketers and retail chains in matters ranging from product development,  to advertising and labeling, to government investigations and product recalls.”

“Amin Talati Upadhye’s focus on advising companies developing products for health, wellness and beauty, including its sophisticated food safety and intellectual property capabilities, perfectly dovetails with the practice I have built over the years,” said Ivan Wasserman. “I am thrilled to be a part of this vibrant new presence here in Washington, D.C.’s regulatory community.”

This expansion continues the growth that started three years ago when our firm welcomed Shashank Upadhye as partner, broadening our capabilities in the pharmaceutical industry and especially in the representation of generic drug companies in Paragraph IV litigation.

The addition of our DC office furthers the ongoing mission of Amin Talati Upadhye to provide full legal services for the lifecycle of products aimed at improving the population’s health and wellness.
