The filing of these cases led to the leading mesh manufacturer to take its most dangerous products off the mark in the United States, as well as sweeping regulatory actions by the U.S. Federal Drug Administration, including reclassification of mesh devices from Class II to Class III devices and federally mandated clinical trials.

Breanne continues to represent women injured by these products all over the country. Because of her extensive experience and expertise, she is sought after by other Plaintiffs firms to teach their own attorneys about transvaginal mesh and the injuries it causes and to assist in working their own cases up for trial.

At her former firm, Breanne helped to establish the Essure JCCP (No. 4887) in Alameda County, Essure Product Cases. Breanne wrote the winning brief in Bayer Corporation, et al., v.

In her work for Lead Counsel of the Johnson & Johnson Talcum Powder litigation, she worked extensively with leading urogynecologic oncologists to develop the Plaintiff’s liability case and demonstrate the causal link between talc and ovarian cancer. This work was recently the subject of an extensive opinion by MDL Judge Freda Wolfson on April 27, 2020, which found that Plaintiff’s experts’ opinions used reliable methodology and substantially supported by science. Less than three weeks later, Johnson & Johnson announced it would discontinue approximately 100 products containing talcum powder in North America. In August 2022, Johnson & Johnson announced it would stop selling talc-based powder worldwide in 2023. Epidemiological studies have shown that between 2,200-5,000 of new ovarian cancer cases were caused by talcum powder use by women – cases that will never occur in future generations of women and girls.

She has been recognized as a Northern California Super Lawyer Rising Star each year as the founder of BGAN Law, 2018-2020.
