Arnold & Porter has built up a reputation for providing bulletproof representation in the courtroom, particularly having reshaped the medical device industry through its trial wins but also through the significant impact its decisions have had on the high-technology world. The driving force behind its success is Matthew Wolf, a top-tier trial lawyer and dynamite presenter who recently added a Supreme Court win to his résumé; he prevailed there for long-time patron Hologic on the issue of assignor estoppel, the doctrine being upheld in a majority opinion. This arose in the context of Hologic’s dispute with Minerva Surgical, in which Wolf and his team have secured many other successes. Integral to this effort, Jennifer Sklenar also has outstanding leadership and advocacy skills. “Jennifer is detail oriented, pragmatic and an excellent communicator. She has a great sense around materiality and knows what issues are worth focusing on and the best strategies for them.” Arnold & Porter marries litigation potency with prosecution mastery, making it a top all-rounder in the practice. David Marsh is an eminent counsellor to the life sciences and medical device industries. “David is enthusiastically willing to get to know his clients’ technology and business strategy, allowing him to get patent claims that have real commercial value.” He dials in his advice perfectly for companies who are completely rethinking the pharmaceutical manufacturing process and innovating at the cutting edge of drug development. He leans into the litigation effort and is part of a coast-to-coast team representing Regeneron in defending against challenges to its patents for blockbuster drug EYELEA.
