Chemistry, pharmaceuticals, life sciences

With us, the chemistry is just right. Since the 90s, we have been supporting companies from the chemical as well as pharmaceuticals and life sciences industries. Often issues regarding medical technology, technical chemistry, polymer chemistry, and biochemistry play a role. Patents in these areas frequently have to do with chemical processes, such as the isolation and modification of organic base materials for synthesis. But we are also increasingly involved in issues dealing with biotechnological inventions and their patenting. For several years, biotechnology has been one of the areas with the highest amount of patent applications at the European Patent Office. So what is the challenge for a good law firm? To define and provide comprehensive protection for inventions—protection that cannot be bypassed. And that is one of our strengths, which is very much appreciated by our clients.
