Kramer Levin’s Life Sciences IP team combines deep technical and industry knowledge with extensive patent litigation experience to achieve winning results in high-stakes biotechnology, pharmaceutical and medical device patent cases. We represent both emerging and established life sciences companies in patent disputes before the district courts and the Patent Trial and Appeal Board, including in the following areas:

  • Pharmaceuticals (Hatch-Waxman)
  • Biotechnology, biologics and biosimilars
  • Medical devices and diagnostics
  • U.S. Patent and Trademark Office contested proceedings

In addition to handling big-ticket patent disputes, we work with life sciences clients to maximize protection for their innovations through strategic patent prosecution, as well as advise them on the IP aspects of due diligence, licensing and corporate transactions.
