We are currently witnessing dynamic growth in the pharmaceutical and life science industries. The amount of research conducted in these fields requires thorough planning of both the research process as well as the commercialization of its results. Research processes, which are often carried out concurrently in many parts of the world, are vulnerable to the risk of infringement of intellectual property rights. This rapid progress is driving companies to develop a precise strategy for protecting, implementing, and developing innovative products, as well as obtaining assistance in matters related to their safe use. Thanks to our comprehensive multidisciplinary approach to our clients’ cases, we are able to minimize the risk of any threats that may arise.
We work closely with both domestic and foreign clients, assisting them in a wide range of areas, e.g. inventions, supplementary protection certificates (CPS), protection of plant varieties, utility models, industrial designs, trademarks, and internet domains, as well as in matters related to unfair competition and copyright. The broad area of operations that we offer, combined with our longstanding experience, allows us to develop customized strategies for intellectual and industrial property protection that align with our clients’ business goals.
The technological and pharmaceutical sector requires support from people who understand life sciences. Within our team, we have engineers and specialists with science degrees, including experts in the fields of molecular biology, genetics, microbiology, pharmacy, and chemical biotechnology, as well as analytical and organic chemistry and chemical technology. Our interdisciplinary approach and wealth of experience mean that our clients can rest assured that they have the right people behind them.
