Pharmaceutical and biotech inventions are key to improving our quality of life, yet research and development is expensive. Guarding long-term investments in the life sciences requires strong patent protection and forward-looking IP strategies. We understand the importance of claim scope, patent term, patent enforceability, and freedom to operate in this highly-competitive environment. Our attorneys have experience not only with pharmaceuticals, therapeutic methods of treatment, and diagnostic assays, but also inventions that cross disciplines like biomaterials incorporated into medical devices, bioinformatics, and computational/simulation models of biological systems.
