Green Griffith Expands Madison Office

Partners Jeff Ward and Wendy Ward move into newly-designed office space

Green Griffith is pleased to announce the opening of new, expanded offices for their Wisconsin location.  Partners Jeff Ward and Wendy Ward moved into the new space in April and will manage their practice from there, coordinating with other Green Griffith attorneys in Chicago and Atlanta.  Jeff and Wendy had been working from a smaller, temporary space since joining the firm in April 2018.  The firm’s new address is 8215 Greenway Boulevard, Suite 220, Middleton, Wisconsin 53562.

“Establishing a permanent office here demonstrates the firm’s commitment to growth,” says Wendy.  “There is office space and meeting space to accommodate more attorneys as we build the Green Griffith team.”

With a wealth of research talent, the Madison area is well-known as a bio-tech innovation hub.

“While our focus on pharmaceuticals is as important as ever, we also have an opportunity here to build relationships with emerging leaders in other fields, leveraging our long experience in patent work, trade secrets matters, counseling and strategy,” says Jeff.  “It’s an exciting place to be.”

Jeff focuses his practice on counseling, litigation, and opinion matters relating to pharmaceutical, chemical and biochemical products and processes.  Jeff has been active in the Hatch-Waxman field for approximately 30 years. During that time, he has represented pharmaceutical companies and API manufacturers regarding 505(b)(2) and ANDA submissions on a wide variety of products. Jeff has acted as lead counsel and tried numerous Hatch-Waxman litigation matters to verdict. In addition, Jeff has counseled clients regarding filing and regulatory strategies.

Wendy’s work involves patent litigation and counseling related to pharmaceutical, veterinary, biotechnological, and chemical products. A significant portion of her practice includes counseling pharmaceutical companies with respect to all aspects of Hatch-Waxman litigation, including pre-initiation evaluation of product candidates, formulation and implementation of Paragraph IV challenge strategies, preparing notice letters, serving as trial counsel, and presenting oral argument on appeal.
