Foley Hoag LLP partner Jeffrey I.D. Lewis has been named a top abbreviated new drug application (ANDA) litigator by Patexia Inc. in its ANDA Litigation Intelligence 2020 report - the first in an annual series that provides rankings, statistics, and comprehensive analysis of stakeholders in patent prosecution.

Preliminary analysis for the report indicates that close to 400 pharmaceutical companies have been involved in ANDA litigation over the last three years and that more than 200 law firms have represented them and over 1,000 attorneys have worked with these companies to represent them either as a defendant or a plaintiff.

The ANDA Litigation Intelligence 2020 report ranks stakeholders including attorneys, law firms, judges, plaintiffs, and defendants; rankings are based on the activity and performance of plaintiffs and defendants.

Lewis, who recently joined Foley Hoag, represents pharmaceutical innovators in ANDA patent litigations. He also concentrates on patent and trademark litigation, counseling, and licensing, as well as other intellectual property and general litigation. Lewis regularly represents plaintiffs and defendants in a range of technology-related sectors with a focus on pharmaceuticals, chemicals, mechanical/medical-device, biotechnology and life sciences.

Lewis is a past President of the American Intellectual Property Law Association (AIPLA) and the U.S. national group of the Association Internationale pour la Protection de la Propriété Intellectuelle (AIPPI).

Patexia Inc. is a privately held IP company formed to provide a network for IP professionals and to bring efficiency and transparency to intellectual property by leveraging the power of data, technology, and experts.
