Clients Merial Limited and Merial SAS

Jones Day successfully represented Plaintiffs Merial Limited and Merial SAS against Velcera Inc. and FidoPharm Inc. securing a preliminary injunction preventing the sale and distribution of generic versions of Merial's flagship FRONTLINE® Plus flea and tick products. In the Order granting the preliminary injunction, the Court explained that the Defendants' expert, who was cross-examined by Jones Day partner J. Patrick Elsevier, Ph.D., "was effectively impeached."
