Experience :

  • Secured a significant victory at the Federal Circuit for Braintree Laboratories, Inc. when the appeals court reversed a district court’s grant of summary judgment of noninfringement for Breckenridge Pharmaceutical and remanded with instructions to enter judgment in Braintree’s favor. This Hatch-Waxman matter involved a patent owned by Braintree pertaining to its product SUPREP, a highly successful product designed to cleanse the colon safely before a colonoscopy.
  • Achieved a significant victory on behalf of our clients, multiple medical device and diagnostics companies, when the District of Delaware granted summary judgment invalidating the key patent asserted against our clients. The judge ultimately entered a final judgment as to that patent, stayed the remainder of the claims and closed the cases.
  • Obtained a favorable result for our client, a large pharmaceutical company, resolving global litigation with a rival pharmaceutical company related to their competing vaccines. A settlement resolved proceedings in Australia, Ireland, Italy, the United Kingdom, the United States, the European Patent Office and the USPTO. Mr. Noyes was the lead New York partner for the litigation.
  • Acted as second chair and conducted all cross examinations of the defense experts in a remand trial on infringement and obtained a victory for the client when the judge found that the proposed generic product would infringe five asserted claims of our client’s patent if marketed and sold. Representation began in 2013 with trial where Mr. Noyes was second chair and was primarily responsible for presenting the case on validity. The Court found that the claims of the patent at issue are invalid for obviousness, anticipation or indefiniteness.
