I always anticipate attending ACI’s Paragraph IV Disputes Conference. But following such unprecedented times, I’m really excited for this year! Not only will we get the benefit of learnings from distinguished speakers and esteemed colleagues on salient topics, but we will also get to talk about these topics and their practical applicability in person. And, honestly, I just miss seeing everyone.

Since 2006, when we launched our inaugural conference, pharmaceutical patent practitioners from throughout the country and in some instances across the globe have attended this conference to confer with each other and assess the implications and imprimaturs of court cases, legislation, and industry behaviors which affect the patent endgame and the pursuit of related profits. They also come to hear from Judges — both from the federal judiciary, and U.S. P.T.O.’s PTAB —, the FTC, and the FDA.

Leaders from both brand and generic drug companies recognize that this event is the single forum which serves both sides of the industry and is second to none in offering both legal and economic “take aways” for every sphere of this costly, complex and evolving litigation. This is the only event on market which not only addresses the hot topics, but also puts them within the context of pre-suit considerations, case filings, final adjudication and every step in between. This unique dynamic exemplifies not only the importance of the content and legal theory presented, but the contending business acuities as well.

Come and join our community of Hatch-Waxman practitioners and be part of the only event which shapes the law, policy, and proceedings of Paragraph IV litigation.


Benchmark, network, and connect with your peers (and opponents) while getting caught up on the latest legal developments, and the shifting legislative and regulatory landscape.
