How Can A Biotech Patent Attorney Help Me?

A biotechnology patent attorney can provide valuable assistance to companies that are developing new biotechnology products or seeking to protect their existing products through patent protection.

Here are some ways that a biotechnology patent attorney can help a company:

  1. Conduct a patentability search: An attorney can conduct a patentability search to determine whether a company’s invention is novel and non-obvious, and therefore eligible for patent protection.
  2. Prepare and file a patent application: A biotechnology patent attorney can prepare and file a patent application with the United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) that describes the invention in detail and explains why it meets the requirements for patentability.
  3. Respond to office actions: If the USPTO issues an office action in response to a patent application, an attorney can help the company respond to the issues raised by the USPTO and address any deficiencies in the application.
  4. Enforce patent rights: If a company’s biotechnology patent is infringed upon by another party, an attorney can help the company enforce its patent rights through litigation or other legal means.
  5. Conduct due diligence: An attorney can conduct due diligence on behalf of a company to ensure that its products and technologies do not infringe on the patents of others.
  6. Negotiate licensing agreements: An attorney can help a company negotiate licensing agreements with other parties that allow the company to use their patented technology, or that allow others to use the company’s patented technology.
  7. Provide strategic advice: An attorney can provide strategic advice to a company on how to protect its intellectual property, develop new products, and navigate the complex regulatory environment in the biotechnology industry.

Paul and Paul is a great firm to work with, especially if you’re an entrepreneur. I’ve been working with the firm since 2013 and have two patents to show. What I love most about Paul and Paul is that they are a boutique firm. The level of attention I get from my attorney, Mr. Sluzas, is likely not found at a larger firm. My questions and concerns are typically answered within hours of my request, if not sooner. If you’re looking for a firm that is experienced, respected and responsive to your needs, I suggest Paul and Paul.
