Event summary

Join us for this Knowledge Group Online CLE Pharmaceutical Antitrust/Life Sciences Antitrust Webinar. Antitrust litigation and investigations of conduct in the pharmaceutical, biotech, and medical device industries continue to increase. Moreover, compliance has never been more critical as the application of antitrust law remains to be a rapidly moving target. Recent judicial decisions and enforcement actions have added both risk and guidance to settlements of patent litigation, product reformulations (“hopping”), refusals to cooperate with proposed generic competitors, contracting practices, and transaction review.

Join a panel of key thought leaders and practitioners assembled by The Knowledge Group as they bring you up to date on the latest developments and provide insights about what the future is likely to hold both for regulatory enforcement and litigation.

Some of the major topics that will be covered are:

  • Risks in settling patent litigation
  • Unilateral refusals to provide samples to prospective generic competitors
  • Biosimilar litigation and contracting practices
  • Pharmaceutical mergers
  • Regulatory enforcement authority
  • Generics price-fixing litigation
  • Class certification standards
  • Supply chain payments including coupons, rebates, and PBM compensation
  • Pharmaceutical data and what it covers
  • Election season: Candidates proposals on drug pricing

Partner Howard Morse is a featured speaker.
