What we do

Our extensive prosecution work in this area often brings us before the European Patent Office, as well as the UK IP Office when obtaining Supplementary Protection Certificates (SPC). We can also secure SPCs through data package preparation for use throughout Europe.

Through involvement in several high-value cases, we’re well versed in opposition and appeal proceedings. Our commercial advice, founded on rigorous understanding of regulatory processes, has allowed pharma companies to successfully bring products to market.

Whether you’re a large corporation planning a major acquisition or an SME seeking partners, we can run Freedom to Operate (FTO) and due diligence investigation.
