TOPIC: A formidable undertaking: Recent developments and the way forward on the undertaking as to damages in pharmaceutical patent cases

In the recent decision of the Federal Court in Commonwealth v Sanofi, the Court found that the Commonwealth’s application for compensation failed.  The panel will discuss why the application failed, consider the implications of that decision and compare and contrast the decision with the 2018 decision in Sigma v Wyeth, a claim for compensation on the undertaking by generic pharmaceutical manufacturers.

Time will be made for questions and discussion.
