The world's largest pharmaceutical company began modestly by providing tartaric and citric acid out of a single Brooklyn building. Pfizer now produces some of the world's most popular drugs including Celebrex®, Viagra®, and Lipitor®. Pfizer's current dominance in the pharmaceutical industry was sealed in the late 1920s with its decision to help Alexander Fleming fund his research on some mold juice, later known to the world as Penicillin. In order to protect its lucrative research and its annual revenue of $32 billion, Pfizer hires some of the best legal talent and relies on 330 in-house lawyers for corporate and intellectual property expertise.

With an impressive resume that includes a clerkship with U.S. Supreme Court Justice William J. Brennan, Jr. and a partnership at Williams and Connelly, Jeffrey Kindler serves as Pfizer's Senior Vice President and General Counsel. In addition to handling the operations of its in-house lawyers sprinkled all over the world, Kindler is also responsible for hiring firms like Arnold & Porter, Kaye Scholer, and Skadden to handle its outside counsel needs. Recently, Pfizer has won two major legal battles, including dismissals of a patent infringement lawsuit regarding COX-2 inhibitors and a lawsuit alleging the possible suicidal effects of the antidepressant Zoloft®.
