Patent protection of innovative methods and products can form the foundation of a successful company, attracting licensing and investment opportunities, as well as market exclusivity.  However, variations in the protection available in different countries for naturally occurring processes and products such as antibodies, medicines and diagnostic methods require expert guidance.

Our technical knowledge combined with legal expertise enables us to advise clients to build strategies with a global approach. We assist with drafting initial applications, ensuring varying national requirements are met, as well guide clients though the prosecution process in the UK, Europe and Internationally. After grant, our team continue to provide support through opposing/defending patents, providing freedom to operate advice, and filing supplementary protection certificates.
