Silver - Individuals: litigation and transactions

In the past six years since its founding, Acuatus has carved out a strong reputation for Irish patent litigation, thanks entirely to the record of its managing partner and sole practitioner, Alistair Payne. His recent credits include acting in high-profile supplementary protection certificate (SPC) litigation on behalf of Mylan Pharmaceuticals against Gilead, but he by no means restricts himself to the life sciences, with big names in almost every industry area seeking him out. Patrons appreciate the bespoke strategies he invents, the personalised service he offers and the calm and collected approach he brings to cross-border litigation.
