Chemistry and pharmaceutics

Our chemistry and pharmaceutics department handles patent and utility model applications and represents you in both opposition and revocation and infringement proceedings, particularly in the following technical fields:

  • Organic and inorganic chemistry
  • Polymer chemistry
  • Technical chemistry, chemical and process engineering
  • Pharmaceutical chemistry, pharmacology and toxicology
  • Biochemistry
  • Nanotechnology
  • Semiconductor engineering

Right from the beginning we assist you in protecting your innovations, starting with initial consultation concerning an application strategy that is tailored to your needs.

The chemical and pharmaceutical fields, in particular, are subject to frequent legal changes which may require swift action and rapid adjustment of the IP strategy.  Therefore, we develop IP strategies for you that are tailored to your company and take the latest legal developments into account.  In this way, we provide you with optimum protection for your innovations even at times of constantly changing legal requirements.

Thanks to our close co-operation with American and Asian law firms, we have the expertise to secure optimum protection for your ideas and innovations in those markets too.  For example, even when preparing national applications, we make sure that the legal requirements of other countries are considered as well, so that comprehensive protection in the various countries is ensured.  At the same time, this allows us to conduct examination procedures with the patent offices of other countries in a cost-efficient manner.
