WilmerHale Partner Thomas G. Saunders served as a guest panelist on a Bloomberg Law Webinar to assess the June 13, 2013, Supreme Court opinion in Association for Molecular Pathology v. Myriad Genetics Inc. The Bloomberg event titled, " Interpreting Myriad: Gene Patenting and Other Inventions at Risk," looked at the reasoning in the Court's decision and how it could come to affect the patent community as a whole.

Paul Redmond Michel, former Chief Judge for the US Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit, and Erika Arner, a partner at Finnegan Henderson.

Saunders is a partner in the Litigation/Controversy Department, and a member of the Appellate and Supreme Court Litigation and Government and Regulatory Litigation Practice Groups. He has significant experience representing clients in patent and copyright cases.
