He is well-versed in the Abbreviated New Drug Application process and has collectively litigated over 200 cases involving pharmaceutical products with his team.

Jonathan E. Bachand has for the fifth time been selected for inclusion in the “Rising Stars" list for his work in intellectual property litigation. He represents various pharmaceutical and medical device clients in adversarial patent proceedings and is widely recognized for his experience representing companies in all phases of district court litigation and in 337 investigations before the International Trade Commission.

Lincoln S. Essig has once again been selected as an intellectual property “Rising Star”. In addition to Lincoln’s strong technical background, he has a track record of successfully helping businesses build valuable patent portfolios for inventions in the fields of medical devices, software, electronics and information technology.
