Biogen v Medeva 20 years on POSTPONED

Due to the tube strike taking place next week we have reluctantly decided to postpone the seminar. A new date will be publicised shortly.

Biogen v Medeva occupied the English patent courts for much of the early 1990s and the ‘Biogen insufficiency’ principle is still applied today. Twenty years later, Rouse is bringing the protagonists of this landmark case together again...

The seminar will discuss the impact this case had on the commercial, legal and scientific arenas as well as the personal recollections of the individuals involved.  Our distinguished panellists include one of the expert witnesses in the case: Professor Jeffrey Almond; members of the parties’ in-house teams: Peter Cozens, Marcus Dalton and Bill Tyrrell; as well as a number of the external solicitors, barristers and US lawyers who acted in the litigation:  Jim Haley, John Ilett, Professor Sir Robin Jacob, Leslie McDonell, Adrian Speck QC and Diana Sternfeld.

Please join us for a lively and interesting discussion.
