Our attorneys have extensive trial experience in pharmaceutical and biotechnology patent infringement and licensing disputes in the federal courts and in arbitration. Many of our senior litigators represented both branded and generic pharmaceutical clients in Hatch-Waxman patent litigation while at their previous firms. They also have litigated patent infringement and licensing disputes involving biologics. We have successfully argued appeals to the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit. Many of the lawyers on our team are registered to practice in the United States Patent and Trademark Office and represent clients in Patent Office proceedings and trials, including inter partes review (IPR) and post-grant invalidity challenges under the America Invents Act.
