Quinn Emanuel’s life sciences attorneys represent pharmaceutical, biotechnology, medical device, and other life sciences companies from around the world.
Quinn Emanuel’s life sciences attorneys have litigated over 200 ANDA cases, and various branded vs. branded matters and pharmaceutical licensing disputes. Our cases have involved diverse subject matter such as new chemical entities, methods of use, crystalline structures, restricted-distribution systems, and new formulations of existing compounds. These same attorneys also have experience advising pharmaceutical companies on pre-regulatory approval activities, FDA regulations, and patent prosecution strategies which allow the companies to develop the strongest patent portfolio to assert during litigation.
Our life sciences practice also has considerable experience in IPRs and other post-grant proceedings acting primarily on behalf of patent owners, and has handled concurrent post-grant reviews and litigations. Our practice is based on an inter-disciplinary model that allows us to become fully familiar with our clients’ businesses and to represent our clients in a wide variety of disputes, including: Intellectual Property, Antitrust, Product Liability, Government Investigations, Off-label Promotion, and Appeals.
