Though modestly sized, Acuatus is a well-respected boutique thanks to the efforts and reputation of founder Alistair Payne, who established the firm five years ago after more than a decade heading up another leading practice. His clients largely hail from the manufacturing and life sciences spheres: as an example, Mylan Pharmaceuticals recently enlisted him to act on its behalf in major SPC-related patent infringement proceedings against Gilead. The personalised service he provides and the stellar results he secures in consequential multi-jurisdictional matters make for a winning combination.
