March 25, 2020 (Los Angeles) – Siegmund (Sige) Gutman has been named to Daily Journal’s Top Intellectual Property Lawyers in California for 2020.
A two-time recipient of this award, Sige, partner and chair of Proskauer’s Life Sciences Patent practice, is recognized as a leading patent litigator who represents cutting-edge biopharmaceutical, biotechnology, and medical device companies.
Among Sige’s most notable matters, he represented Amgen Inc. after it was sued by Genentech Inc. in a case that involved complex biosimilar cancer drugs.
Last July, Sige led the Proskauer team that persuaded U.S. District Judge Colm F. Connolly of the District of Delaware to deny Genentech’s emergency motion to prohibit commercial marketing and for a temporary restraining order against Amgen.
Sige says, “What is so exciting about these biosimilar cases is that the strategies and the cases and the law are relatively new. You can be creative.”
The Daily Journal’’s Top Intellectual Property Lawyers award recognizes California lawyers who have achieved significant successes for their clients over the past year and have distinguished themselves as leaders within their firms and the legal industry.
