Case Summary  |  Judgment  |  23 January 2009

 

Andrew Lykiardopoulos appeared as junior counsel for the Defendant in this patent revocation dispute heard by His Honour Judge Fysh QC in December 2008. Each party sought a declaration of invalidity in relation to the other's patent. Both patents related to a substance called aclidinium, an anticholinergic used to treat respiratory disorders. The Judge held that both patents were invalid and should be revoked.
