Research Description

Reverse Payments
The Hatch-Waxman Act expedites the ability for generics to enter markets; however, pioneer drug companies have been suing the generics for infringing on their patents. In the end, the two companies generally settle with the pioneer company paying the generic company. I am researching these payments and seeing whether or not they are per se illegal under the Sherman Act.
