Intellectual Property Support

Improved Pharma’s principals and consultants have decades of experience in assisting attorneys with intellectual property matters. We serve as subject matter experts on a broad range of technologies that are encompassed by the chemical and pharmaceutical arts. Our laboratory is well-equipped with the instrumentation to address the most challenging scientific activities required by your case. More importantly our team of experts has the knowledge, training, and expertise to provide the highest quality test data to support expert opinions, or to provide counsel with the key information to shape their legal arguments. We understand the importance of timelines, and the necessity to provide accurate scientific data and information that will withstand scrutiny at a deposition or in court.

Representative scientific activities by Improved Pharma’s scientists have included prior art reproductions, testing of accused products to support infringement analysis, and enablement of patented inventions, among others. We also have assisted attorneys with scientific matters related to patent prosecution (such as overcoming patent office rejections), due diligence exercises concerning licensing agreements, and scientific support related to trade secret and anti-trust matters.

Our scientists frequently serve as expert witnesses in matters before US courts and abroad. Recently, the United States Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit cited Dr. Byrn’s landmark paper on polymorph screening. They concluded that polymorphism is unpredictable and not obvious based on laboratory work and experiments. This ruling will likely have a significant impact on ANDA filing strategies.
