Patent Expert Witnesses

What areas may patent experts consult on?  Patent experts may testify and write reports on patent validity, patent prosecution, and patent infringement. Eli Lilly recently won a patent case in the Court of Appeal in London regarding the lung cancer drug Alimta.  The court ruled that Actavis’s plan to market certain alternative salt forms of Alimta would indirectly infringe another Lilly patent.

Eli Lilly and Company is headquartered in Indianapolis, IN, with offices in Puerto Rico and 17 other countries. ALIMTA is approved by the FDA in combination with cisplatin (another chemotherapy drug) for the initial treatment of advanced nonsquamous non-small cell lung cancer. The drug generated worldwide sales of $2.79B in 2014.
