Background

Terry G. Mahn is Managing Principal of the Washington, DC, office, and the Regulatory and Government Affairs Practice Group Leader. He joined the firm in 1991 and his practice is primarily before the FCC and FDA with emphasis on complex product authorizations. Mr. Mahn’s FCC practice includes all facets of spectrum allocation, wireless technology and licensing, and equipment approvals. He actively participates in domestic and international product standards development, harmonization, and compliance in the areas of radio communications, EMC, electrical, medical, and RF safety.

He is an active member of the international standards organization IEC/CISPR (International Electrochemical Commission/International Special Committee on Radio Interference) and is the U.S. Technical Advisor to CISPR Subcommittee B in charge of developing international radiofrequency interference standards for industrial, scientific, and medical devices (ISM). He has extensive knowledge on international EMC and radio regulations and spectrum allocations for many types of licensed and unlicensed communications technologies. He also represents the American National Standards Institute (ANSI) C63 Committee before the FCC and other federal agencies on various radiofrequency interference matters involving digital devices and many types of RF emitters.

His FDA practice involves pharmaceutical and medical device approvals with special emphasis on drug exclusivities and patent protection under Hatch-Waxman; “safe harbor” counseling and patent term extension applications; biosimilar approvals, brand exclusivities and patent litigation procedures under the Biologics Price Competition and Innovation Act. He also has extensive experience in the regulation of digital health, telemedicine, and wireless medical device technologies. Mr. Mahn is on the Advisory Board for the Bloomberg BNA Pharmaceutical Law and Industry Report.
