Paul, Weiss, Rifkind, Wharton & Garrison LLP combines ‘perfect response times’ with ‘deep industry knowledge’. The practice’s main line of activity is high-stakes competitor litigation, in particular technology-, life sciences- and electronics-related disputes. Washington DC’s David Ball, who ‘shows strength in litigation strategy development’, joined forces with practice head Nicholas Groombridge and Eric Alan Stone, both based in New York, to represent Biogen in a long-running litigation against several competitors regarding patents covering Biogen’s blockbuster drug Avonex®. Additionally, the practice is acting for Amgen in multiple interconnected high-stakes suits against Sandoz, Apotex and Coherus and Hospira, involving appellate work and a Supreme Court petition, and in a recent PTAB highlight, the group successfully represented Epson in an IPR against Cascades Projection regarding a digital projection system patent. Catherine Nyarady in New York and Kenneth Gallo in Washington DC are also noted. In Washington DC, Steven Baughman and counsel Megan Raymond joined from Ropes & Gray LLP.
