Our law firm concentrates its practice in biotech patent law serving clients in New York City and throughout the world. Based on over 40 years of both technical and professional legal experience in the pharmaceutical and biotech industries representing pharmaceutical and biotech companies, we are very well positioned to handle the patent needs of both start-ups and established pharma/biotech companies. We have, over many years, secured breakthrough patents in various technological areas, including chemotherapeutic agents, ophthalmology, and joint diseases.
We concentrate our practice in bio tech patents. Our diverse and extensive technical and legal background and experience, including authorship of a soon-to-be-published book on patent prosecution, places us in a position to secure for our clients strong patent rights throughout the world as well as to maintain and enforce those rights and to defend our clients' right to conduct their businesses to the fullest and without hindrance.
Bio tech patents provide a competitive edge in today's bio technology-driven business culture throughout the world. We provide our clients with guidance to dramatically improve our clients' offensive and defensive game and guide them through the labyrinth of complex laws and regulations.
For the offensive game, we assist our clients to identify the commercial value of their bio tech inventions. We perform state of the art and pre-examination (i.e., patent novelty) searches to give our clients the information necessary to determine if they can or should proceed with the patent process for their bio tech inventions. We provide business, legal, and practical advice on securing strong and enforceable patent rights. We prepare and prosecute patent applications and we work tirelessly to enforce our clients' rights in the U.S. and around the world. We also attend to all of our clients' licensing needs: from advising our clients, drafting and negotiating their licensing contracts, and enforcing those agreements in litigation where necessary.
For our clients' defensive game, we put our clients' business concerns first by providing the legal and technical guidance to steer clear of unwanted claims of patent infringement. This includes patent infringement and validity searches so that our clients can defend and/or design around patent claims. We perform the necessary legal research and analysis to show that our clients' activities are appropriate and that, where possible, claims of infringement are without merit. We assist our clients in determining whether or not there are less costly alternatives to licensing as well as determining the scope and obligations of our clients under proposed licenses and existing licenses.
