Group Attorneys:

Life Sciences technologies, in particular pharmaceuticals and biotechnology, are some of the most promising emerging technologies. Companies focused toward innovation in the Life Sciences field are faced with an array of business opportunities and risks. In order to achieve and maintain a competitive market position, a Life Sciences organization must be poised and committed to protecting its valuable intellectual property. In addition to intellectual property protection, a Life Sciences organization may also require proper advisement to create a business strategy through technology licensing.

The Life Sciences Practice Group of MacCord Mason assists our clients in developing, protecting and exploiting their intellectual property assets. We are dedicated to facilitating our clients understanding of the business opportunities intellectual property creates. Our team of registered patent attorneys has been involved in a variety of aspects of the Life Sciences. Our success in obtaining intellectual property protection meeting the goals of our clients, rests not only upon thorough knowledge of the law, but also upon the broad base of technical experience possessed by members of the law firm.

The following strengths are particularly relevant to assisting Life Science clients in obtaining protection for intellectual property:
  • Expertise: Members of the MacCord Mason Life Sciences Practice Group have technical backgrounds that facilitate effective communication with inventors in the Life Sciences field.

  • Innovation and cost effectiveness: The relatively small size of our practice and exclusive focus on intellectual property allow us to obtain cost-effective, meaningful protection for our clients' intellectual property assets.
