Polsinelli is pleased to announce that Shareholder Mark T. Deming has been appointed to Vice Chair of the firm’s Hatch-Waxman Practice Group. Deming joins Hatch-Waxman Practice Chair Gary E. Hood to lead Polsinelli’s team of attorneys, scientists and patent agents in the group.
Deming is an intellectual property attorney who regularly advises large and small companies across the country, practicing trademark, patent and trade dress areas within IP. He has a particular focus in Hatch-Waxman pharmaceutical patent litigation, with experience representing both brand-side and generic-side companies, including first-filer cases.
“Mark has demonstrated leadership through his Hatch-Waxman work and the excellent client service he provides each and every day,” said Hood. “We are proud to name him Vice Chair of the Hatch-Waxman Practice and know that he will excel as a leader through his outstanding knowledge of this area of law and through his strong leadership skills.”
Deming currently leads all aspects of Hatch-Waxman case development, from initial assessment through discovery, motions practice, claim construction, expert witnesses and trial and appeal. He is a registered patent attorney and was admitted to practice before the United States Patent and Trademark Office in 2012.
As Vice Chair of Polsinelli’s Hatch-Waxman Practice, Deming works alongside Hood to lead the Practice and team of attorneys who represent some of the world’s largest, best-known and most influential generic, brand and special pharmaceutical companies. Polsinelli’s group of Hatch-Waxman attorneys have litigated an array of cases, from blockbuster products to smaller market and specialty pharmaceutical in first-to-file and later-filer cases.
“I appreciate this opportunity to join with Gary in leading our great team of Hatch-Waxman attorneys who are so skilled in this complex area of law,” said Deming. “As one of the largest Intellectual Property Practices in the nation, I hope to help bolster our team’s growth and further strengthen our Practice.”
