Sidley’s appellate victories on behalf of Auris Health in Auris Health v. Intuitive Surgical has won “Patent Impact Case of the Year” at the LMG Life Sciences Americas Awards 2022. The annual awards ceremony identifies the leading North American law firms and lawyers in the life sciences industry.
A Sidley IP Litigation and Supreme Court & Appellate team secured three significant appellate victories on behalf of client Auris Health at the Federal Circuit, all argued on the same day. In a sweeping set of wins, Sidley successfully obtained an affirmance of its win at the Patent Trial and Appeal Board (PTAB) invalidating one patent. The firm simultaneously successfully secured vacate and remand decisions for the other two patents that the PTAB had upheld.
The Sidley team was led by Ching-Lee Fukuda, Ryan C. Morris, and Thomas A. Broughan III, and included Sharon Lee, Timothy Q. Li, Paul Rogerson, and Alice A. Wang.
