American Conference Institute’s Hatch-Waxman Series Advisory board was created as a part of ACI’s ongoing effort to provide industry leading content and a world renowned speaker faculty. The board is composed of a selection of all-in-house advisers, including Chief IP and very senior IP/Patent counsel from the leading brand name and generic pharmaceutical companies in the country and in some cases the world. This ‘inner circle’ counsels ACI on the impact of litigation trends and emerging topics.
