Sonia Nath


I help strategically prepare and guide clients through a variety of issues within the constantly evolving FDA regulatory landscape.

Sonia is an experienced, solution-oriented attorney who served for almost 12 years at the FDA’s Office of the Chief Counsel. During her tenure at FDA, Sonia gained subject matter experience across the gamut of FDA-regulated products, including pharmaceuticals, medical devices, conventional foods, dietary supplements, OTC drugs, animal drugs and biologics, and advised agency personnel on responses to industry non-compliance. At FDA, Sonia negotiated dozens of civil consent decrees for the government, including the first FDA consent decree involving a REMS drug. She defended the FDA in lawsuits brought by industry under the Administrative Procedure Act and the Freedom of Information Act, and also handled False Claims Act litigation for the agency. Sonia most recently assisted with criminal prosecutions involving a wide variety of FDA-regulated products in her appointed role as Special Assistant United States Attorney (SAUSA) with the US Attorney’s Office in the Central District of California.
