Life sciences

Our life sciences attorneys are experts in this complex area of law, and take a commercial approach to their work.

We understand that your patent portfolio is a valuable business asset, and work with you to devise a creative business strategy to maximise its value.

Our life science clients range from large multinationals to individual scientists, inventors and start-ups, and we work across all fields, including:

  • Immunology
  • Biochemistry
  • Molecular biology
  • Protein chemistry
  • Pharmaceutical chemistry
  • Monoclonal antibodies
  • Nutraceuticals

We are able to advise you on due diligence matters – whether you are selling or buying a patent, or company with a patent portfolio. We can establish exactly who owns a patent, what it covers and the strength of the protection conferred.

We offer regular workshops in which we discuss your latest work and identify any opportunities to protect your innovations. We also run educational programmes for your scientists to help them get the most out of the patent system.

A significant element of the work we do is defending our clients' patents when opposed and opposing their competitors' patents.

Our life science patent services include:

  • Drafting and filing UK, European and International patent applications
  • Prosecuting applications to grant
  • Filing and defending oppositions
  • Advice on enforcing your intellectual property rights
  • Recording patent assignments
  • Assessment of validity and infringement of granted patents
  • Budgeting advice on intellectual property spend
  • Patent portfolio management advice

  • Drafting and filing Supplementary Protection Certificates (SPCs)
