Brent Batzer is an experienced patent lawyer, litigating patents for both brand and generic pharmaceutical companies. Clients rely on Brent for quick answers when available, detailed analysis when called for, and a pragmatic approach befitting an attorney with an engineering background.
Brent’s primary focus is the pharmaceutical industry. With extensive experience in Paragraph IV litigation on both the generic and brand sides, and additional experience in patent prosecution of brand portfolios, both domestic and worldwide, he brings knowledge from all angles to his client’s cases. Brent has also litigated patent cases in the medical device, dietary supplement, mechanical, and gaming fields, as well as experience in trademark and commercial litigation. His litigation experience includes several Federal Circuit appeals.
Brent is also an experienced patent prosecutor outside of pharmaceuticals, with experience in the dietary supplement and medical and dental device industries, as well as design patents. Additionally, Brent commonly advises clients on a variety of contracts and intellectual property matters, including freedom to operate opinions, trademarks, supply and distribution agreements, trademark and patent licenses, confidentiality agreements, and the like.
Brent recognizes that each case, contract, and situation is different, and that a minor detail in one situation may not really be minor to another client. To that end, Brent works with his clients to understand their business needs and goals, and crafts a strategy, whether in litigation, a contract, or an IP portfolio, focused on achieving them.
Brent is an avid (though rather lousy) golfer and subjects his wife to his cooking on a regular basis. He had a radio show during his college years, once won $150 in a karaoke contest, and as a trivia nut and regular participant in LearnedLeague swears he will one day be on Jeopardy!®
