Independent boutique Belmore Neidrauer is home to a dedicated team of IP lawyers who boast a client-oriented approach and practical solutions. The set’s holistic services have been sought out by some of the biggest names in the pharmaceutical industry, including Pfizer and Janssen. Peter Wilcox has been lending his talents to both instructions, and he teamed up with Marian Wolanski to represent Janssen against Teva in one of the first patent infringement proceedings under the new PM(NOC) Regulations, involving its medication Invega Sustenna, which is used once a month to treat schizophrenia. This case is one of just a few in Canada in which the court upheld the validity of the patent relating to a dosage regimen. Stephanie Anderson partnered with Wilcox on the Pfizer mandate, successfully representing them in an EpiPen infringement action. The opposing party’s claims were determined to be invalid on several grounds, including overbreadth, and represents an important clarification of the law concerning overbreadth, which has often been questioned by academics.
