Litigation partner Nicholas Groombridge was recognized as one of The National Law Journal’s “Winning Litigators” in its 2018 special report. In addition to sharing trial tips that have been the key to his success, Nick discusses his biggest trial win, acting as lead counsel for Vanda Pharmaceuticals in a patent infringement lawsuit against West-Ward Pharmaceuticals Inc. “The case was important because the ability to patent a method of treatment like this is fundamental to Vanda’s business model,” Nick told NLJ. “We successfully showed how Vanda, by adjusting the dosage depending on a patient’s individual genetic profile, overcame safety concerns that had led the drug’s prior owner to abandon it. This win facilitates patents on personalized medicine inventions.”
