The competitive spirit that Dom Conde brings to every one of his engagements has made him one of the nation’s preeminent patent litigators. For more than 25 years, it has fueled his work on large-scale patent litigation, in which he often represents pharmaceutical clients in high-value ANDA matters. Those familiar with his work call him a “top pharma lawyer” and say that he “completely stands out in terms of raw intelligence, lawyering skills and putting together the perfect case.” – Chambers USA
In addition to serving as lead counsel in Hatch-Waxman litigation, Dom regularly represents clients in contested proceedings before the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office. He also frequently represents clients outside the pharmaceutical industry.
The consistent thread in all of Dom’s work – and the reason he is regularly recognized as one of the top IP litigators in the country – is his indefatigable will to reach a favorable result for his client. It’s why he is known not only as an “intellectual giant” – Best Lawyers, but as a “mature, pragmatic lawyer with great judgment” – IAM 250
Dom has spent his entire career in private practice at Fitzpatrick, Cella, Harper & Scinto. He previously served as the firm’s Managing Partner and currently sits on the firm’s Management Committee.
Dom secured a complete victory in Hatch-Waxman litigation for Pfizer Inc. and two other clients against generic eye drops infringed patents held by his clients, and that those patents were not invalid for obviousness. He cemented the result with a unanimous decision in his clients’ favor at the Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit.
