    Case Law and Regulatory Antitrust Developments Post-Actavis
    This presentation was originally scheduled on Friday at 10:15 a.m.

    Danielle Joy "DJ" Healey, Fish & Richardson P.C. - Houston, TX

    ​Complaints about drug prices have lead to expansion of antitrust problems for Pharma. Legislation has imposed new government reporting requirements for patent licenses in the Pharma industry. Other legislation is pending to impose new antitrust risks and penalties on the Pharma industry. Case law on  “reverse settlements” has snowballed since FTC v. Actavis, and now reaches even non-cash settlement terms. Standard-setting has now become a part of the Pharma and medical device industry, bringing with it disclosure, FRAND and antitrust issues. Hear more on enacted and pending legislation, case law developments, and future trends in antitrust in the Pharma Industry.
