Antitrust Services for Life Sciences Companies

Pharmaceutical and life science companies turn to Goodwin to address all of their most important competition-related issues. Our antitrust lawyers are deeply immersed in the legal issues at the forefront of antitrust enforcement, with particular experience in issues involving the interaction of antitrust with IP laws and U.S. FDA regulations. We have litigated cases and advised clients in this area on matters involving licensing, sham litigation, settlement of IP litigation, reverse payments and patent hold-up with standard setting organizations, among others.

We represent clients in private antitrust litigation, government investigations, and licensing disputes with competitors, among other matters. We have provided counseling on strategic business transactions, patent litigation settlements, citizen petitions, potential antitrust claims in relations to the misuse of Risk Evaluation and Mitigation Strategy (REMS) policies to delay generic entry, and other topics.

We have deep expertise and experience with the competition issues presented by lifecycle management practices, sham litigation, the reverse payment doctrine, licensing, and related issues including:

  • Advising pharmaceutical clients on settling patent litigation between brand and generic companies
  • Complying with regulatory requirements for submission of materials to the U.S. government, including under the Medicare Modernization Act (MMA)
  • Defending investigations by the U.S. FTC and state attorneys general, including into alleged “reverse payment” agreements
  • Defending public enforcement actions and private class-action lawsuits challenging alleged “reverse payment” agreements
  • Advising on and litigating issues concerning “product hopping”
  • Litigating disputes among competitors involving patent and product licenses
