Joseph M. Bennett-Paris joined Taft’s Pharmaceutical and Life Sciences Litigation practice in 2014 and practices in Atlanta and Chicago. For 15 years, Joe has counseled clients in all areas of patent law, including patent prosecution, non-infringement, patentability, freedom-to-operate, invalidity and licensing. His practice primarily focuses on biotechnology, pharmaceutical, chemistry, and most recently, biosimilars.
For several years, Joe’s practice has focused on the generic drug industry. Prior to entering law, he served on the faculty of the Wake Forest University School of Medicine, and because of this intimate knowledge of academia, he has been able to provide unique contributions to several Hatch-Waxman cases, particularly in finding and working with expert witnesses and inventors.
Joe is a frequent lecturer and author on intellectual property-related topics. He recently co-authored a chapter with Richard Ruzich titled “Pre-Clinical R&D” in ANDA Litigation: Strategies & Tactics for Pharmaceutical Patent Litigators, 2nd ed. (in press).
Joe’s practice also includes copyright matters and entertainment law, particularly with regard to the music and publishing industries. He devotes a significant amount of pro bono work to the arts community through the Georgia Lawyers for the Arts.
In addition, he sits on the board of several non-profit organizations, including A5 Volleyball Club, the premier junior club volleyball organization in the Southeast for both girls and boys volleyball.
