Jin is an associate in the International IP Group, based in London. He specialises in intellectual property disputes, with a particular focus on pharmaceutical and Life Sciences patents. His dual qualifications in law (First Class Hons) and pharmacology give him a special insight into, and understanding of, his clients’ legal needs and commercial and regulatory imperatives. Jin is a key member of the team acting for Pfizer group Warner-Lambert in enforcing its second medical use patent for its blockbuster drug Lyrica (pregabalin) as a pain treatment against a large number of generic companies in the UK and across Europe. In addition to being a significant case for other owners of second medical use patents, the on-going case has been heralded in the UK as the IP case of the decade and has set legal precedent in English law by obtaining guidance from NHS England concerning the prescribing and dispensing of Lyrica and clarification from the Court of Appeal on the infringement test for Swiss-form second medical use claims.
