Represented the plaintiff, a major pharmaceutical company, in a five-week-long bench patent trial held in the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York. After the trial, the Court held that seven defendants’ generic products, as described in their ANDAs, infringed nearly all of our client’s asserted patent claims and that the defendants failed to prove that those infringed claims were invalid. The Court ultimately issued an injunction barring all defendants from selling copies of the plaintiff's highly successful pharmaceutical product.
