Patents for Medical Inventions

The protection of medical inventions is one of the least harmonized areas of international patent law. When applying for a medical patent, it is not usually sufficient to focus only on those aspects of the invention that are patentable in Europe. It is also necessary to consider innovative aspects which may not be eligible for protection in Europe but can still be patented in any non-European jurisdictions where protection might be required. These aspects should be included in the patent application from the very outset so as to ensure adequate protection wherever it is needed.

Our involvement in the field of medical inventions is particularly comprehensive, with a range that includes diagnostic imaging, active and passive implants, molecular diagnostics, and biopharmaceuticals. Together with our colleagues abroad we have deliberately built up international expertise so that we can provide our clients worldwide with the greatest possible protection.
