Pharmaceuticals

A growing and aging population is putting increased pressure on healthcare providers and innovators. Limited healthcare budgets are squeezing the value in the sector to innovators. It is therefore increasingly important that innovators obtain and defend a robust IP portfolio to protect their research and development assets. It is also crucial to monitor third party rights that might disrupt the pharmaceutical value chain and clear the path where necessary.

How we can help

We are a focussed, specialist group representing and advising multinational companies, universities and spin-outs that carry out leading research and development to obtain, manage and defend their worldwide IP rights, as well as to challenge third party IP rights. We also advise on due diligence, freedom to operate, patentability, infringement, and mergers and acquisitions matters.

We have a team of attorneys with technical backgrounds and experience in the chemical and biological fields to inform an expertise in medicinal chemistry and pharmacology. We also have a wealth of experience in brand protection. We have advised on wide of pharmaceutical matters relating to human health and animal health.

We are ideally placed to protect your pharmaceutical technology via patents, supplementary protection certificates and trade marks.
