Weil Patent Litigation partner Edward Reines was recently named among the “Top Intellectual Property Attorneys” in California for 2017 by the Daily Journal.
In its profile of Mr. Reines, the Daily Journal highlights his recent successes and current work involving some of the most groundbreaking advancements in medical science. Earlier this year, Mr. Reines secured a key appellate victory for a Stanford University bioengineering professor, Dr. Stephen Quake, who invented a prenatal diagnostic test for Down and Turner syndromes. Mr. Reines also secured a victory on behalf of the biomedical giant Illumina Inc., which recently developed a revolutionary DNA sequencer. Mr. Reines prevailed in obtaining a preliminary injunction barring Qiagen N.V., a rival of Illumina’s, from selling its competing sequencer in the United States until the litigation was resolved. In its opinion, the court stated that Mr. Reines had presented “a rare and powerful case for the unusual remedy of a preliminary injunction.” For his work as counsel to Illumina, he was selected as “Litigator of the Week” by The AmLaw Litigation Daily.
