April 23, 2018

O’Melveny partner Lisa Pensabene and counsel Dan O’Boyle will speak at American Conference Institute’s 12th annual Paragraph IV Disputes conference on April 23, 2018, in New York.

Pensabene will co-moderate the panel, “The Federal Judges Speak on Paragraph IV Litigation.” The discussion will ask distinguished jurists with some of the liveliest Paragraph IV litigation dockets in the country to examine decision-making practices employed by the judicial system and provide advice for both patent holders and patent challengers.

O’Boyle will speak on the panel, “A Closer Look at Dispositive Motions: An In-Depth Discussion of Summary Judgment and Declaratory Judgments Motions for Brand Names and Generics.” The panel will cover such topics as assessing the probability of success for a declaratory judgment motion, identifying circumstances when summary judgment is the best option, and addressing dispositive motion practice with multiple ANDA filers.

A first chair trial lawyer, she has led more than 20 major pharmaceutical and chemical patent litigations, leading cases in bench and jury trials, arguing to the Federal Circuit, and leading briefing to the US Supreme Court.
