New York, NY, United States, 2008/12/16 - Cohen Pontani Lieberman & Pavane Partner Alan Morrison will author a subchapter on U.S. patent enforcement methods for inclusion in the tentatively titled “IP Issues in the Therapeutic Antibody Industry” - CPLPLaw.com.
Alan J. Morrison, a partner in the New York City law firm of Cohen Pontani Lieberman & Pavane LLP, has been tapped to author a subchapter on U.S. patent enforcement methods for inclusion in the tentatively titled “IP Issues in the Therapeutic Antibody Industry” by Dr. Ulrich Storz, a partner in the Düsseldorf law firm of Michalski Huettermann & Partner.
According to Morrison, “Developments in recombinant antibody technology have resulted in a proliferation of therapeutic antibody patents internationally. These patents, like others in the biotech and pharmaceutical fields, are being enforced with increasing frequency.”
Mr. Morrison’s sub-chapter will provide a general synopsis of U.S. enforcement procedures.
“IP Issues in the Therapeutic Antibody Industry” will be included in the 2009 edition of “Antibody Engineering” published by Springer Lab Manuals.
