Pharmaceuticals and Biotechnologies

Manufacturers in the pharmaceutical and biotechnology sector are driven to rapidly produce and introduce innovative drugs and therapies to the market. While the sector is fueled by scientific advances, it also faces a number of challenges, many of which have legal implications. Among them are product liability, regulation and compliance, and patent and other intellectual property issues.

We counsel clients with a global perspective supported by a deep understanding of the science (organic chemistry, molecular biology, biochemistry, and pharmacology) as well as the venues (U.S. district courts, Patent Trial and Appeal Board, Federal Court of Australia, and the Unified Patent Court).

We have extensive experience with pharmaceutical patent work and a successful track record of representing pharmaceutical companies in more than 40 Hatch-Waxman cases over the past decade, numerous inter partes review proceedings, hundreds of opinions, and thousands of patent applications.

Underpinning our work is a deep understanding of the pharmaceutical industry and technology from first-hand knowledge and experience:

  • Intellectual property lawyers with doctorates
  • Lawyers and agents with biotechnology-related degrees
  • Lawyers and agents with chemistry or chemical degrees
  • Team members with pharmaceutical experience
