Counsel from Irell & Manella LLP, Sandoz and Bristol Myers Squib to Chair ACI's Paragraph IV Disputes this April in NYC
Join the Honorable Kathleen M. O'Malley (Ret.), Neema Kumar, and Serena Farquharson Torres.
The Honorable Kathleen M. O'Malley (Ret.) comments, "This year's Paragraph IV Disputes conference comes at an important time. Our innovation and IP Ecosystem are under attack from a variety of sources, putting our economy, the future of our health care, and our strategic place in the world at risk. I look forward to discussing these risks and possible ways to minimize those risks with the talented pool of IP professionals the conference annually brings together. I am also personally pleased that I am being given the chance to conduct a dialogue with Judge Leonard Stark, my successor on the Federal Circuit. That will be a highlight of the Conference for me."
Neema Kumar notes that, "A robust and predictable patent system is critical to incentivizing innovation while facilitating access and ensuring the long-term sustainability of lower cost critical medicines. Join industry leaders, members of the judiciary, key agency representatives and your colleagues as we discuss game changing legislation impacting our industry and patients, current Hatch-Waxman trends, pharmaceutical policy initiatives and much more."
Serena Farquharson Torres adds, "Being on the forefront of pioneering research makes me both excited and hopeful for our patients yet somehow uncertain of the future protection of such innovation. I'm looking forward to hearing from government agencies, the judiciary, in-house and outside counsel regarding various considerations impacting the future of patent procurement as well as patent enforcement."
Leaders from both brand and generic drug companies recognize that this event serves both sides of the industry and offers both legal and economic "take aways" for every sphere of this costly, complex and evolving litigation.
