Raj Gandesha, a patent litigation attorney with White and Case, New York, will visit NUJS on the 25th of this month (coming Tuesday) and speak on “Pharmaceutical Innovations: A 3-D Perspective”. The event will be held in Room 006 of NUJS, starting at 4 pm and expecting to finish at 6 pm.
In particular, Raj will discuss a report that he authored on behalf of the US India Business Council (USIBC) on this theme. This report has proved controversial owing to the alleged involvement of Mr Anand Sharma, India's commerce minister, at a USIBC event where this report was first announced. We had blogged on this controversy earlier here and here.
I hope this will prove a lively session, as I plan to contest some of the findings of this report. I hope you can make it, if you’re free. Attendance is free. But if you plan to attend, please send an email to shouvikkumarguha[at]gmail.com.
