Thomas J. Parker, Esq., is a counselor for Intellectual Property Practice Group in the New York office of Coudert Brothers LLP.
The competition for generics' 180-day marketing exclusivity is fierce, and Dr. Reddy's Laboratories filed the first court case calling into question FDA's methods for determining exclusivity on a patent-by-patent basis.
