IP protection for biotech

We work across biotechnology’s applications in human and animal health, food production, non-food industrial uses and environmental uses, on diverse inventions including biopharmaceuticals, diagnostic methods, genetically modified crops, biofuels and environmental bioremediation.

It’s crucial to protect the products of expensive and time-consuming R&D with a strong IP portfolio, defending innovation against infringement.

Our expertise in biotechnology intellectual property

We are a focused, specialist group of IP attorneys representing and advising multinational companies, universities and SMEs that carry out leading R&D to obtain, manage and defend their worldwide IP rights and challenge third-party IP rights. We also advise on due diligence, freedom to operate, patentability, infringement and merger and acquisition matters.

Our multidisciplinary team of attorneys gives us access to a range of technical backgrounds and experience in the chemical and biological fields, as well as vast experience in brand protection. We advise on biologics such as therapeutic antibodies, blood products, gene therapies, stem cells and vaccines, diagnostic methods for animal and human health applications such as those based on DNA, RNA and the microbiome, plant variety rights and biofuel production.

We are ideally placed to protect your biotechnology technology via patents, plant variety rights (plant breeder rights), supplementary protection certificates or trademarks.
