The pharmaceutical space is a happy hunting ground for the patent division at esteemed full-service outfit Ballas, Pelecanos & Associates. “It is one of the strongest firms in Greece for dispute resolution, especially in relation to generics”, and is thus counsel of choice to leading players such as Pharmathen and Sandoz. Taking the lead for both is the pre-eminent George Ballas, who can be counted on for his “responsiveness and practical advice”. He has also been representing Teva Europe Pharmaceuticals in proceedings brought by Novartis concerning the production and distribution of a new product. Ballas is a leading authority in the life sciences, but his skills are also highly sought out by top telecommunications companies such as Ericsson, which look to him for European patent validations. Coordinating the litigation division is George Moukas, a poised performer before the civil and criminal courts whose shrewd enforcement plans bring about swift and successful outcomes.
