"An authority in the pharmaceutical field, Ravi Srinivasan has vast experience filing international applications and – as a qualified litigator – performs adroitly in opposition and appeal hearings before the EPO. He recently successfully defended Durect Corporation's Relday anti-psychotic medication against an opposition filed by Mylan."
