TOPIC: Preliminary Discovery after Pfizer v Samsung Bioepis

Preliminary discovery can be a helpful tool in any IP dispute to identify a prospective respondent or to ascertain whether a proceeding can be commenced against that prospective respondent. But when should you apply for preliminary discovery? Do you have enough evidence to commence proceedings?

In this seminar, Lucy McGovern of Tenth Floor Chambers will look at preliminary discovery applications in light of the Full Federal Court’s recent decision in Pfizer Ireland Pharmaceuticals v Samsung Bioepis AU Pty Ltd [2017] FCAFC 193 and offer some practical tips to consider when drafting inter party correspondence, making an application for preliminary discovery and preparing evidence in support.
