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.
