Executive Summary

Sheldon Bradshaw, chief counsel of FDA, resigned from the agency Sept. 6 to join Hunton & Williams' food and drug law practice, according to the firm.

Once and future Chief Counsel

Gerald Masoudi returns from the Justice Department to become FDA chief counsel/associate general counsel effective Oct. 12. He replaces Sheldon Bradshaw, who left the agency Sept. 12 to join the Washington, D.C. firm Hunton & Williams (1"The Tan Sheet" Sept. 10, 2007, In Brief). The role will be a familiar one for Masoudi, who came to FDA in 2004 as deputy chief counsel and was acting chief counsel for several months before Bradshaw was named to the post (2"The Tan Sheet" April 11, 2005, p. 7). Since 2005, Masoudi has been deputy assistant attorney general in charge of International, Policy and Appellate Matters in the Antitrust Division at the U.S. Department of Justice. Before joining FDA, Masoudi was a partner at Kirkland & Ellis, where his background included antitrust work (3"The Tan Sheet" Nov. 15, 2004, p. 12)...
