Summary

Jaimin focuses his practice on patent litigation and counseling related to pharmaceuticals and biosimilars.

Jaimin has represented world-class pharmaceutical companies in various phases of patent litigation, including generic versions of: Xeljanz (tofacitinib), Abilify (aripiprazole), Pazeo (olopatadine 0.7%), and the isosulfan blue dye.  He has extensive experience working with experts to develop scientific non-infringement and/or invalidity defenses, and drafting related reports.  Jaimin has also assisted in all aspects of a preliminary injunction proceeding, including deposing a technical expert and drafting the appellate briefs.

In addition to pharmaceutical and life sciences patent litigation, Jaimin counsels pharmaceutical companies on FDA-related matters.  Recently, he played an instrumental role in formulating a robust and persuasive position for clients on an important industry issue relating to Orphan Drug Exclusivity.  He also advocated for a client’s rights in a Competitive Generic Therapies exclusivity matter, including preparing a motion for temporary restraining order.  On both matters, he tackled challenging statutory interpretation issues and formulated incisive analyses to advance the client’s positions.

Jaimin frequently analyzes license and settlement agreements of pharmaceutical companies to advise on the appropriate course of action, including the timing of commercial launch of drugs. 

Outside of the pharma industry, Jaimin currently has primary responsibility in a software-related patent litigation in the Eastern District of Texas.  He is also assisting in a matter related to the enforcement of bicycle chainring patents and inter partes reviews on medical device patents.

As a manager in the company’s Intellectual Property Cell, he gained first-hand knowledge in litigation strategy and the business realities that inform company decisions. Before joining Taft, Jaimin was an associate in the Chicago office of Schiff Hardin LLP, where he focused primarily on Hatch-Waxman matters. 

Jaimin received a B.Sc.in biochemistry from St. Xavier’s College and an M.Sc. in biotechnology from the Indian Institute of Technology-Bombay.
