Small Molecules

Management of intellectual property of small molecule and chemical process technologies requires a command of the chemical technology, especially organic chemistry. Accordingly, all of our chemical professionals have degrees in chemistry or chemical engineering, and many of them have advanced degrees in chemistry.

In addition, based on the experience of our firm’s founding partners as patent examiners, our approach to prosecution of small molecule and chemical process applications combines our high degree of technical expertise with our unparalleled access to discuss cases with the examiners.

Moreover, our technical expertise affords us an understanding of how small molecule and chemical process technologies fit in the marketplace, allowing us to better guide our clients through the entire technology lifecycle, from invention to enforcement.

We represent pharmaceutical and chemical companies around the world and have prosecuted chemical patents in the areas of small molecule pharmaceuticals, small molecule agrochemicals and chemical processing.
