Andrea M. Glinka Przybysz

Chicago, IL | D 312.624.6317 | F 312.624.6309

Andrea Glinka Przybysz focuses on pharmaceutical manufacturer liability—specifically regulatory and post-market surveillance issues.

She has served on several national counsel teams for three top 20 drug and device manufacturers in litigation involving sulfonamide and glitazone drugs as well as metal-on-metal implants and vaginal mesh. She has successfully defended against injury allegations related to Stevens Johnson’s Syndrome, Toxic Epidermal Necrolysis, surgical intervention, cancer, and cardiovascular and kidney injuries.

Andrea strongly believes in evidence-based medicine. She is keenly interested in epidemiology and biostatistics and well versed in regulatory issues pursuant to the Federal Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act and approval pathways for new drugs and premarket devices. Her science practice focuses on developing the defense’s expert case through the analysis of large adverse events/complaints datasets and biologic/pharmacokinetic profiles. This work complements a regulatory practice that emphasizes proper reporting to FDA from drug development to post-market surveillance.

Andrea, an avid soccer player, was inducted into the University of Chicago Athletics Hall of Fame in September 2015.
