Since joining Eli Lilly’s patent division nearly 20 years ago, Manisha Desai has worked on the procurement and enforcement of patents worldwide.
Although she has focused exclusively on patent litigation for the past ten years, Manisha Desai stays in touch with patent procurement through remaining active in various IP policy matters, as LSIPR reports.
“The best parts of the job are also some of the greatest challenges,” Desai explains. “I love working with our affiliates and local counsel, especially in the emerging markets, as I can learn so much from them about local laws and procedures,” she adds, saying that she has managed patent litigation in Latin America, Russia, the Middle East, and South Asia, as well as across the US.
However, in emerging markets, expectations have to be managed when engaging in litigation in a country with a less-developed IP system.
