It’s not enough for life science attorneys to have a strong legal background. They also must have a firm grasp of the technology to be successful in intellectual property cases.
Husch Blackwell has one of the most comprehensive chemical/biotech IP practices in the country. Our team includes more than 50 intellectual property attorneys, including an extraordinary number of doctorate-level scientists with backgrounds in the chemical/biotech arts. We have a proven record of success, having secured many thousands of patents for our clients.
In addition to our robust patent prosecution practice, we have extensive experience with appeals and inter partes review (IPR) cases before the Patent Trial and Appeal Board. Our practice encompasses representation before the International Trade Commission, U.S. District Courts and federal appeals courts. Additionally, we are skilled at providing opinions on freedom to operate, due diligence and invalidity/noninfringement. Because many of our attorneys worked as scientists and have unique insights into the relevant technologies, we provide astute advice on design-around strategies. We have experience in what matters most to our clients.
We work with Chemistry & Biotech clients on the following types of matters:
Polymers and Plastics
Adhesive and Resins
Coatings and Platings
Water Purification and Treatment
