Dr. Judy Jarecki-Black

 
 

Dr. Judy Jarecki-Black is the Global Head of Intellectual Property at Merial Limited.


It was Dr. Jarecki-Black's 20-year experience as a human and animal vaccines researcher (including the development and licensing of the recombinant Lyme (OspA) vaccine) that led her to a law degree, specialization in biotech patent law, and her current global IP responsibilities at Merial. The company is one of the largest animal pharmaceutical and biologics companies in the world and a joint venture of Merck and Sanofi-Aventis.
 
In her position, she oversees the drafting and prosecuting of patent applications all over the world for a variety of animal health inventions, including biologic and pharmaceutical compositions and their methods of use. She manages a department with a full staff and a multi-million dollar budget and additional responsibilities for generating patentability and freedom-to-operate opinions, conducting due diligence for licensing opportunities, and managing global patent litigation. Her department collaborates with both internal functions at Merial as well as outside counsel in more than 35 countries.
 
As lead counsel for Merials patent litigation team, she also takes an active role in planning and carrying out the trial strategy for all infringement activities world-wide.
 
Dr. Jarecki-Black was recently awarded the "Best Chief IP Counsel" in the Global Counsel Awards sponsored by the International Law Office (ILO).
