ABSTRACT
The article focuses on the pharmaceutical company AstraZeneca PLC's legal spending. It is reported that the company's annual legal spending is in excess of $66 million. The massive $66 million legal spending is split into two ways. Litigation--principally intellectual property and patent work--accounts for $54 million, and the other $12 million goes on corporate and commercial affairs. The legal team of the company consists of 85 lawyers and 65 patent attorneys. Where external counsel is needed, AstraZeneca turns to firms such as Freshfields Bruckhaus Deringer, Herbert Smith, Linklaters and Mayer Brown Rowe & Maw.
