THIS IS THE BOOKING PAGE FOR THE WEBINAR FOR THIS EVENT
Rapid Response Event: Fujifilm v AbbVie
Mr Justice Henry Carr’s judgment of 3 March 2017 was the first time that relief has been ordered by the English Courts in the form of an Arrow declaration. In this special event, a panel of distinguished speakers will review the decision from the perspective of patent law (Michael Silverleaf QC, 11 South Square), competition law (Mark Brealey QC, Brick Court) and patent prosecution strategy (Ravi Srinivasan, J A Kemp) to assess whether the circumstances of the case were sufficiently unusual to make this a one-off decision or whether this marks the beginning of a new trend in biosimilars patent litigation where patent thickets are dense and the need for commercial certainty high. AbbVie was alleged to be avoiding adjudication on the validity of its patents. Was the declaration justified or was AbbVie merely operating within the rules?
1. There is no charge for members to dial in to the webinar. There is a £20 charge for non-members.
2. Whilst the event is billed to start at 6pm, it is primarily a live event (rather than primarily a webinar), and it is likely that the actual start time will be closer to 6.05pm.
3. The webinar is live only and is not recorded – the intention is simply for webinar attendees to be able to listen to the talk as if present in person.
4. We cannot rule out further technical problems. Should you find you cannot log in or that you lose sound and/or vision during the webinar, please email firstname.lastname@example.org the following day to let us know (that email will be seen by AIPPI secretary Sara Ashby and her PA) (but please do so politely, as this is a non-money making trial and they provide their services voluntarily!). In the event of a technical failure, any fee paid will be refunded.
