Chemical Engineering & Materials Science

Our team of experienced chemists, physicists and chemical engineers provide advice in protecting IP in many areas of industrial-based chemical innovation. 

Our team is experienced in providing a full range of IP services including patents and designs, as well as those areas of critical importance to industry, such as analysis of competitors.

The IP services provided by our team include:

  • Patent drafting and prosecution around the world
  • Patent portfolio planning and analysis
  • Freedom-to-operate searching and advice
  • Advice on strategic management of ip (including freedom-to-operate, non-infringement, validity and patentability opinions)
  • Analysis of competitor and other third party positions (evaluation, acquisition and exploitation of technology)
  • Advice and support in obtaining pharmaceutical patent extensions of term
  • Monitoring competitor activity
  • Patent opposition
