Chemistry and Biochemistry

Inventions in the fields of chemistry and biochemistry, as traditional areas of technology, may in general be protected by patents. However, this may be different for particular inventions in the area of biotechnology for which limitations are posed by the European Biotechnology Directive. Also, medical procedures are subject to rather strict requirements for patentablity.

We counsel you about what may be protected in the area of chemistry, biochemistry and biotechnology in which way. Through cooperation with various companies, universities and research laboratories we have a wide experience for example in the area of polymer chemistry and medical technology, in the technology of functional coatings and in complex inventions in the area of veterinary medicine, in questions relating to the patentability of material as well as  the patenting of processes.
