ANDA and other Intellectual Property Litigation in the District of Delaware
The State of Delaware has reported that over 66% of all publicly traded companies in the United States, including over 66% of Fortune 500 companies, are Delaware legal entities. It should therefore be no surprise that the United States District Court for the District of Delaware is a major epicenter for patent litigation. In fact, the Delaware District Court’s 2016 Annual Report noted that intellectual property cases comprised 49% of its total caseload in 2015, versus 3.7% nationally, with an average of 165 patent, copyright and trademark cases per judge, versus 20.8 IP cases per judge nationally. As a result of this IP-heavy caseload, District of Delaware judges have gained extensive familiarity with IP cases and are nationally and internationally renowned for their prompt, even-handed, and well-reasoned adjudication of such controversies. RatnerPrestia offers its clients the assistance of experienced Delaware counsel familiar with the practices and procedures of the Court and its judges.
