Scientific Update consultants are regularly asked to work as expert witnesses and to assist clients and their legal teams in developing cases involving patent disputes on process patents, polymorphism issues and related matters. Validity and infringement of patents are constantly being addressed and our consultants have worked on cases in USA, Canada, UK, Ireland, Holland, Norway, Denmark, Finland, Israel, Thailand, Philippines and Australia over the past few years. Most of these cases involve the pharmaceutical industry particularly when patent expiry is due and generic competition is imminent. We have worked with both multinational pharma companies and with generic companies.
