The technology and pharmaceutical sectors are fiercely competitive and highly reliant upon intellectual property work carried out at the research and development stage. When a patent is granted to an inventor, this property right gives the innovator the right to exclude others from manufacturing, using, importing or commercializing the invention.
The potential for other companies free riding on the initial R&D costs borne by an innovating firm, especially in the pharmaceutical industry, is too great to navigate without proper legal representation given the lengthy, expensive, uncertain and risky research and development process. Consequently, identifying, safeguarding and taking advantage of these intellectual property rights are extremely vital to our clients’ success.
Disputes over patents are deceptively complex and this complexity is compounded by different courts treating violations in somewhat conflicting ways, as well as by inhibiting the release of confidential information needed to prove a violation.
