Andrew Mandlsohn’s practice focusses on pharmaceutical matters, particularly those relating to pharmaceutical regulation and litigation (including patent infringement actions, applications under the Patented Medicines (Notice of Compliance) Regulations, and section 8 actions). Andrew’s practice also includes handling requests made by third parties to Health Canada under the Access to Information Act.

Prior to joining the firm, Andrew worked in a Department of Public Health (Division of Food and Drug), hospital and community pharmacies, a leading American biopharmaceutical company (Division of Regulatory Strategy and Intelligence), and a national law firm where he practiced pharmaceutical litigation (patents and product liability). Through these experiences, and as a licensed pharmacist entitled to practice in multiple jurisdictions, Andrew has acquired significant knowledge not only of the laws relevant to the pharmaceutical industry and retail drug stores but also in the professional practice of pharmacy including pharmacotherapy, drug interchangeability and reimbursement. This combination of skills allows him to assist clients directly and efficiently with matters that would otherwise require the attention of multiple professionals.

During his undergraduate studies, Andrew was elected to membership in The Rho Chi Society, the academic honour society in pharmacy. Upon obtaining his pharmacy degree, Andrew was awarded the Facts & Comparisons Award of Excellence in Clinical Communications for high academic achievement and outstanding communication skills.

During his legal studies, Andrew obtained a Concentration Certificate in Health and Biomedical Law and attained the highest standing in his Health Law course.

Andrew also prepares case-law briefs for, and is a regular contributor to, Rx IP Update (the firm's monthly newsletter on pharmaceutical intellectual property law and regulatory developments).
