Energetic and committed, Josh James brings a strong background in biomedical and chemical engineering to helping clients strengthen and enforce their intellectual property rights. His practice focuses on patent litigation, particularly Hatch-Waxman pharmaceutical litigations in federal courts and inter partes review (IPR) proceedings before the Patent Trial and Appeal Board (PTAB).
Josh’s scientific knowledge helps him hit the ground running, especially in cases involving highly complex chemical compounds. He easily meets technical experts on their own terms and uses that knowledge to take a key role on joint-defense groups. Thinking forward, Josh is able to use his training to help identify and prepare scientific experts for litigation.
Josh has been involved in multiple bench trials; arguing motions before judges in both federal courts and the PTAB; taking and defending depositions; drafting appellate briefs; drafting IPR and reexamination briefs; drafting pleadings on invalidity, noninfringement and claim construction issues; reviewing and producing documents; and leading coordination and strategy sessions among members of joint defense groups.
