The challenges faced by this sector are greater than ever in a fiercely competitive arena where companies need to move fast to take products from promising ideas to market.
We work with our clients in all areas of IP counselling, including patent drafting and prosecution (for UK, EP, PCT, and overseas); freedom to operate and due diligence; portfolio management; opposition and appeal proceedings; SPCs/extensions; Plant Variety Rights and regulatory issues (including orphan drug legislation and data protection), to create and deliver innovative, insightful, high quality, client-focused services that provide real commercial value.
Our extensive experience in contentious matters, and our awareness of how to manage and take advantage of the procedural and substantive aspects of the law, allows us to devise and present a case in the clientsâ€™ best interests, including at first instance and appeal level.
For this reason, the attorneys in our group are sought after by corporations from around the world to take on difficult, commercially important cases.
