Patents: Mayne Pharma (USA) Inc v Teva UK Ltd

The trial judge described this case as “very short to try and very hard to decide”. The issues were whether the patent was valid and if so whether it had been infringed. Mr Justice Pumfrey concluded that the patent would have been infringed had it been invalid but in the event it was bad for obviousness. There was no new law in this case but a good illustration of how the court works with expert evidence.

About Jane Lambert

I am a barrister specializing in intellectual property, technology, media and entertainment and competition law. I specialize in helping SME (small and medium enterprises) protect and exploit their investment in brands, design, technology and the arts. SME require intellectual property (legal protection for their intellectual assets) at least as much as big business but their limited means restrict the way they can use it. Looking after such clients wisely requires skills and knowledge which have taken me years to learn.
