Over the course of the past decade, innovations in biotechnology have escaped the laboratory and become commercialized. In fact, biotechnology is one of the fastest growing areas of technology, with rapid innovation being seen in a multitude of sectors. The courts have repeatedly found innovations in the field biotechnology to warrant patent protection, and intellectual property protection has become essential for the commercial success and protection of biotechnology innovations. Maier & Maier offers a full range of IP counseling regarding biotechnology innovations, ranging from automated DNA sequencing technologies, genetic modification, and protein therapies to biotech-based alternatives for materials and energy, as well the full spectrum of chemical and pharmaceutical technologies.
Types of Technology
Maier & Maier employs a team with extensive scientific experience and strives to remain well-versed in the ever-advancing developments of biotechnology. Maier & Maier can assist you in obtaining protection for a wide variety of biotechnology advancements, including new vaccines, antibiotics, pharmaceutical drugs, disease treatments or therapies (including new treatments and therapies for HIV/AIDs or cancer), new medical devices, pesticides, and genetic compositions. Biotechnological innovations have garnered significant attention, as well as funding, from both the public and private sector as well. Maier & Maier can help to ensure that this funding results in strongly protected innovations.
Why Protect Your Technology?
The development of biotechnical, chemical, and pharmaceutical products generally require large investments in research and testing. Thus, protecting the final product from being replicated is essential to ensure that the true inventor and innovator be reimbursed for the time and money they have invested in the technology. Acquiring and enforcing patent protection has become all the more important in the current global landscape where these types of innovations are constantly counterfeited, replicated and adjusted by the large number of competitors in the market. Maier & Maier has extensive experience obtaining broad patent protection and will provide, among other services, counsel to ensure continued protection of biotechnology, chemical, and pharmaceutical innovations.
Further, biotechnology, chemistry and pharmaceuticals are fields with global impacts. Advancements in these fields are not geographically confined; they may have a use, impact or effect anywhere in the world. As such, it is important to acquire worldwide protection for these innovations. Maier & Maier has extensive experience with global patent prosecution and protection. Maier & Maier has filed patents worldwide and provided clients with intellectual property protection all over the globe.
