Mr. Chowdhury advises domestic and foreign corporations in matters of FDA and international regulatory compliance. In particular, he assists corporations in establishing clearances for food and drug additives in the U.S., Canada, and European Union, with an emphasis on indirect additives used in food-contact materials. Mr. Chowdhury has also developed expertise in tobacco product regulation and has experience representing tobacco manufacturers and suppliers, including electronic cigarette companies, in FDA regulatory matters. He is also a frequent contributor to the Food and Drug Law Institute's (FDLI) Update magazine, currently serves on the Editorial Advisory Board of the Food and Drug Law Journal, and edited and co-authored FDLI's first tobacco-exclusive publication, Tobacco Regulation and Compliance: An Essential Resource.

Mr. Chowdhury also has an active pro bono practice through the firm's Pro Bono Program, and has been featured in the Baltimore Sun for successfully obtaining asylum in the United States for a family who fled their home country of El Salvador because of violence they faced from an international gang.

Prior to joining Keller and Heckman, Mr. Chowdhury practiced in the corporate and litigation groups of a large international law firm. He also served as judicial law clerk for the Honorable Timothy E. Meredith of the Court of Special Appeals of Maryland.
