Our patent attorneys have a background as researcher at a biotech company or research institute. They specialise in molecular biology, microbiology, immunology, plant and animal genetics, gene therapy, genome editing, vaccines, antibody and RNA technology and bioinformatics. Professional knowledge in these life sciences fields is necessary to professionally and successfully conduct patent applications or FTO analyses. For example, it is important to research whether your invention can and may be patented. Is there a specific regulation relating to genetics, improvement and test phases which affects the patent application procedure? In view of the substantial costs involved in research and development, it is particularly important to have a patent attorney who understands the life sciences market thoroughly.
