Effective & Business Value-Oriented Patents

Exclusive command over your innovative technology underpins business success in the biotech and pharma space. Patents, which protect technical advancements are conceivably the most impactful and value-generating instrument in your ‘exclusivity toolbox’. To secure patents which accurately claim and describe the invented technology, dovetail with the existing patent portfolio and implement the overall business strategy, one must tap into diverse knowledge resources within an organisation. To this end, awareness of the key role played by patents and of the patenting process should be widely distributed throughout an organisation, and most certainly within R&D, marketing, legal and management.
