Back to Case Listing

Represented Allergan against Alcon Laboratories in a series of cases in the U.S. District Court for the Central District of California and in the Federal Circuit.

The cases made new law by establishing the scope of pioneer and generic pharmaceutical manufacturers’ rights to assert method-of-use patents under the Hatch-Waxman Act and the appropriate scope of method-of-use patents that may be listed in the Orange Book.
