Former HHS General Counsel Robert Charrow, who wrote the Dec. 30 advisory opinion on 340B contract pharmacy, has rejoined his law firm.

HHS Contract Pharmacy Advisory Opinion Author Returns to Private Sector

Robert Charrow—the U.S. Health and Human Services (HHS) general counsel who memorably opined that drug companies must offer their products at or below the 340B ceiling price “be it the lunar surface, low-earth orbit, or a neighborhood pharmacy”—has rejoined his law firm.

Greenberg Traurig announced Charrow’s return as senior chairman of the firm’s health care  FDA practice yesterday. In late December, Charrow wrote in an HHS advisory opinion that the 340B statute requires manufacturers to offer their products for purchase by covered entities at or below the 340B ceiling price, “not qualified, restricted, or dependent on how the covered entity chooses to distribute the covered outpatient drugs.” Eli Lilly, AstraZeneca, Sanofi, and Novo Nordisk have asked federal courts to stop HHS from enforcing Charrow’s legal opinion.
