Vaccines and Virology

J A Kemp LLP have substantial experience dealing with vaccines. Our team includes a number of attorneys with technical backgrounds in relevant fields such as immunology, virology and parasitology, with a number of first degrees, masters and PhDs in these areas. We are at ease with this area of technology and have a wide range of experience in prosecuting it at the European Patent Office (EPO), as well as attacking and defending it in Oppositions and Appeals. Our practice also includes obtaining Supplementary Protection Certificates (SPCs) for vaccines.

As well as working directly on vaccines, we have a substantial practice in related inventions such as carrier, delivery and vector technologies, including peptide, DNA and RNA -based approaches, plus adjuvants and administration schedules. We help to build and defend intellectual property rights in all of these areas, designing portfolios to maximise protection for clinical vaccine products. We also work on anti-viral and other therapeutics, including small molecule pharmaceuticals and antibodies and biologics.
