Chief Judge Pallmeyer to Speak at Upcoming Paragraph IV Disputes Master Symposium

American Conference Institute is pleased to announce Chief Judge Pallmeyer as a featured speaker at its 7th Annual Paragraph IV Disputes Master Symposium on October 3 & 4, 2019 in Chicago.

As the industry prepares to address the fallout of global pharmaceutical patent losses of billions of dollars and the impact of evolving law, regulation and policy impacting the Hatch-Waxman landscape, the time for this conference has never been more relevant. This event is known to offer a one-of-a-kind opportunity to develop and perfect the offensive moves and defensive plays needed to meet the new challenges of Paragraph IV litigation.

Chief Judge Pallmeyer will examine decision-making practices employed by the judicial system and provide sage advice for both patent holders, and patent challengers.

Preeminent patent litigators representing brand name and generic drug makers will also provide key insights on:

  • Pending Hatch-Waxman reform measures which may impact your practice and change the balance of power between brand names and generics
  • The impact of new Section 101 and 112 challenges on ANDA litigation
  • Evolving Doctrine of Equivalents jurisprudence and how it is affecting Hatch-Waxman cases
  • Novel and strategic use of 12(b) and 12 (c) motions
  • The application of blocking patents post-Acorda
  • New developments impacting parallel proceedings
  • The economic impact of recent FDA activity affecting market access and exclusivities
