Over the past decade Lynn Seithel has litigated against some of the largest pharmaceutical companies in the world including American Home Products, Wyeth, and Glaxosmithkline to name a few. She was one of the first to pursue lawsuits against the makers of Avandia®, Advair®, Paxil®, Serevent®, Vioxx®, Yaz®, and Trasylol®. Over the years, a large portion of her practice centered on representing parents and children in birth defect litigation as a result of mothers taking potentially dangerous drugs during pregnancy that lacked adequate safety warnings. Some of the potentially dangerous drugs during pregnancy include Paxil®, Zoloft®, Prozac®, Wellbutrin®, Depakote®, Diflucan®, Topomax® and Serequel®. Although she primarily concentrates on pharmaceutical litigation, her past experience includes work in tobacco and auto defect litigation as well.
Lynn Seithel's passion for the law was demonstrated early when she represented both the citizens of Charleston County and the State of South Carolina in the South Carolina House of Representatives from 1994-2000. While in the General Assembly, Lynn was a member of the Judiciary, Ethics, and Environmental Affairs committees. She was also a member of the Labor, Commerce, and Industry committee. Lynn's accomplishments in the legislature include sponsoring and passing healthcare legislation such as the South Carolina Patient Bill of Rights and the South Carolina Healthcare Omnibus Act. In 2000, Governor Jim Hodges awarded Seithel with the Order of the Palmetto for her contributions to her constituents and the State of South Carolina.
