“My background in the defense side helped me know what to look for,” said Hook. “That public information raised a lot of red flags and I knew the private information would provide even more. …
“In dealing with corporate giants, nothing is easy,” said Hook. “I have shown up for depositions where the pharmaceutical company has nine lawyers and it’s just me.”
