RMMS consists of over 30 attorneys focused exclusively in the field of pharmaceutical and biopharmaceutical patent and regulatory counseling, and litigation under Hatch-Waxman, the Medicare Modernization Act (MMA), the Biologics Price Competition and Innovation Act (BPCIA), as well as post-grant review before the Patent Trial and Appeal Board.
RMMS attorneys embrace the science of a case, and make it an integral part of our winning strategy. Indeed, a majority of our attorneys have technical degrees or backgrounds in a variety of areas and disciplines, including chemistry, biochemistry, biology, molecular biology, microbiology, genetics, bacteriology, bioengineering, biomedical engineering, chemical engineering and pharmacy, and many of our attorneys are registered with the USPTO. RMMS also employs full-time Ph.D. technical advisors specializing in chemistry, biological sciences, and pharmaceutics/pharmacy.
Our experience is unparalleled in the industry. Since the firm’s inception over 15 years ago, RMMS has handled over 300 Hatch-Waxman/BPCIA and related pharmaceutical litigation matters (including declaratory judgment, patent infringement, Administrative Procedure Act (APA), and commercial dispute matters) involving at least 160 different drug products for over 25 pharmaceutical clients. In addition to our substantial litigation experience, our attorneys also have extensive regulatory and legislative experience.
We understand that patent litigation is not an end-game, and that the business decisions made throughout the entire product and patent evaluation, regulatory review, litigation, and commercialization process are equally critical to the company’s strategic plans involving any one product or group of products. Our goals are aligned with those of our clients: to ensure that each client obtains value from its applications, whether through the eventual commercial marketing of the product, the sale or assignment of the asset, or relationship-building with other companies through joint development agreements, active pharmaceutical ingredient (API) and finished dosage form supply agreements, licensing agreements, and co-promotion and marketing agreements.
