Successful defence of LEO Pharma’s patent opposed by multiple generics companies at the EPO

This event was particularly noteworthy because the same patent had been revoked only weeks before in the English High Court in Teva UK Ltd and Teva Pharmaceutical Industries Ltd v LEO Pharma A/S and LEO Laboratories Ltd [2014] EWHC 3096 (Pat).

Ultimately, the Court of Appeal followed the Opposition Division’s conclusions and overturned its lower Court.
