J A Kemp's Biotechnology and Life Sciences Group
Whichever area of the biotechnology and life sciences spectrum you occupy, we have the technical expertise and breadth and depth of resources to help you to protect and exploit your intellectual property. J A Kemp has one of the greatest concentrations of biotechnology and life sciences patent expertise in Europe.
With 10 partners in the firm working predominantly on biotechnology subject matter and a team including at least a dozen PhDs, we represent clients in technology areas as diverse as antibodies and biologics, diagnostics and personalised medicine, plant science, regenerative medicine and vaccines and immunology. For many clients within the life sciences field our work crosses over into pharmaceuticals, or into specialised areas requiring complementary technical skills such as medical devices.
Our work is often right at the cutting edge of science, including inventions originating in prestigious universities and commercialised by their technology transfer arms. We work with many startup businesses.
We have particular strength in handling oppositions and appeals at the European Patent Office relating to biotechnology and life science cases, often in large multi-party cases.
