Baker Botts Intellectual Property Team Wins Inter Partes Review Appeals for Client Pharmacosmos

NEW YORK, April 12, 2018 - Baker Botts L.L.P., a leading international law firm, today achieved wins at the United States Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit (Federal Circuit) on behalf of firm client, Denmark-based, specialty pharmaceutical maker, Pharmacosmos.

In connection with two inter partes review (IPRs) proceedings, the U.S. Patent Trial and Appeal Board (PTAB) invalidated 25 claims from two patents owned by competitor Luitpold Pharmaceuticals, Inc. relating to parenteral iron therapy, and Luitpold appealed the decisions in both IPRs. The Federal Circuit summarily affirmed those decisions under Federal Circuit Rule 36 today.

The Baker Botts team was led by Paul Ragusa, who argued the appeals before the Federal Circuit. The team included partners Jennifer Tempesta, Steve Lendaris, Lisa Kole (retired) and associates Carolyn Pirraglia and Amy Song.
