Ex-FDA Chief Counsel on Relationships, Consensus-Building


28 Jul 2021

Stacy Cline Amin, co-lead of Morrison & Foerster’s FDA Regulatory & Compliance Practice, spoke with Law360 about serving as former chief counsel of the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) amid the global coronavirus pandemic, the difference between her work in Congress and at the White House, and the importance of relationship-building.

“Probably the most important skill for me was relationship-building. A lot of your work as a general counsel is problem-solving and consensus-building,” said Amin. “In order to do both of those things, you really need to have formed strong relationships with the people that you’re working with in an organization, and I think I was able to be successful in my role, both in finding creative solutions to problems and in building the consensus necessary to execute those solutions because I had put the effort into building strong relationships with my colleagues.”
