LMG Life Sciences Recognizes Desmarais LLP as IP Firm to Watch


Desmarais LLP was named the Intellectual Property Firm to Watch at the 2019 LMG Life Sciences Awards.
The annual LMG Life Sciences Awards honor firms in North America for their outstanding legal work in the life sciences based on four practice areas – regulatory, intellectual property, financial and corporate, and litigation and enforcement.
The Intellectual Property Firm to Watch Award recognizes Desmarais LLP’s growing life sciences practice, which has significantly expanded in the last year. In October 2018, Bindu Donovan and Todd L. Krause joined the firm as partners, each with more than 20 years of experience litigating life sciences cases. Their practices focus on patent litigation involving pharmaceutical, medical device and biotechnology companies.
Donovan and Krause also work alongside Partner John Desmarais who has decades of experience handling patent litigation for pharmaceutical companies, including successfully litigating Hatch-Waxman cases against generics on behalf of billion-dollar drug franchises.
