BOSTON–(BUSINESS WIRE)–#derricktodd–Lubin & Meyer trial attorneys are featured on the cover of the latest issue of New England’s Best Lawyers, having completed their most successful year obtaining chart-topping verdicts and settlements while taking the lead in a class action lawsuit representing more than 200 patients of a former Boston-area rheumatologist accusing him of sexual assault.

In the cover article, “Protecting Patients and the Public,” writer Justin Smulison calls 2024 the firm’s landmark year as Lubin & Meyer pursues a local case with national impact. The case against Derrick Todd, MD, formerly of Brigham and Women’s Hospital and Charles River Medical Associates, alleges improper behavior including unnecessary and invasive pelvic exams and breast exams, among other doctor patient boundary violations.

Lubin & Meyer filed a master complaint that united the various lawsuits filed against Todd. In addition to Todd the lawsuit names three dozen defendants. And patients continue to come forward to join the class action.

Lubin & Meyer founder and well-known victim’s advocate, Attorney, Andrew C. Meyer, Jr., stated, “This doctor violated his oath not to harm — to protect and act in the best interest of his patients.”

Meyer and his partner William J. Thompson are lead attorneys on the case along with partners Maria Mazur and Julie Davis and Mary Wenham of the medical staff.

Said Meyer, “When numerous plaintiffs come forward, it is unlikely that supervisors and leadership were unaware of this doctor’s unethical and illegal behavior.”

“We plan to expose a pattern of systemic recklessness and negligence. We aim to hold all wrongdoers accountable, secure maximum compensation for the victims and demand the necessary reforms to prevent such unthinkable acts from recurring in our health care systems. Our decades of experience in complex medical malpractice and catastrophic injury cases has uniquely prepared us for a class action of this caliber,” said Meyer.
