EXPERIENCE :

  • Represented Endo Pharmaceuticals Inc. and Strakan International S.à r.l. against Watson Labs’ attempt to make a generic version of Endo’s FORTESTA® product. Following a bench trial, the judge ruled in our clients’ favor on all contested issues and rejected the defendant’s claims of non-infringement, invalidity, and unenforceability. Successfully argued on appeal with the Federal Circuit affirming the trial court decision.
  • Represented Apotex Inc. and Apotex Corp. in a patent infringement action regarding Apotex’s biosimilar applications to make biosimilar versions of Amgen’s NEULASTA® and NEUPOGEN® products. We navigated Apotex through the Biologics Price Competition and Innovation Act’s “patent dance,” and in the first BPCIA case to go to trial, we obtained a verdict of noninfringement. This result was affirmed on appeal to the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit.
