Media Coverage

Our attorneys are frequently called upon by the media to serve as resources for commentary on a range of intellectual property issues:

Patent World
November 2008

In the Patent World article, “US Presidential Candidates Back Biosimilars,” Joseph Trojan forecasts that even with the four biosimilar bills currently before Congress, nothing will progress in 2008 and they will likely be reintroduced later in 2009, with a bill in place by 2010.  Mr. Trojan went on to comment that the biosimilars proposition related to clinical testing of biosimilar drugs is unlikely to make it into a final bill, but a diluted version would pass.

Los Angeles Business Journal

Joseph Trojan was quoted in the Los Angeles Business Journal article, “HIV, AIDS Developer Heads to Court in Company Feud.”  The article examines the lawsuit brought by biotech company Viral Genetics Inc. against its former executive who is accused of attempting to bankrupt the company and taking intellectual property to another firm.  Based on the complaint, Mr. Trojan said that the allegations were shocking if true.
