With an even-tempered communication style and experience as a research pharmacist, Constantine (“Dino”) Koutsoubas helps generic pharmaceutical manufacturers bring their products to market.

Dino’s litigation practice includes defending generic pharmaceutical manufacturers in matters involving pharmaceutical products liability and Hatch-Waxman patent litigation. His strong advocacy for his clients—in and out of court—and his analytical skills allow him to identify arguments and position each of his cases for the best chance of succeeding. An avid team player, Dino strives to maximize his client’s time and resources at every turn.

Prior to law school, Dino held a process engineering and research pharmacist role at a major pharmaceutical company, where he was responsible for scaling-up solid dosage form formulations from the clinical scale to the commercial scale validation batches. For his products, he was ultimately responsible for preparing the process development reports for the New Drug Application.

Dino also advises companies on emerging technologies, including cryptocurrency and non-fungible tokens. His experience includes the minting of NFTs and advising on contractual rights associated with digital assets.

With my scientific background and legal experience, I help pharma clients translate complex information and difficult concepts into effective litigation strategies.”
