Biotechnology IP Attorneys
Biotech IP Law Firm
Biotechnology is the use of cellular and biomolecular processes to develop products and processes to help improve our lives. Applications of biotechnology include, for example, genetic engineering, tissue culture technologies, bioinformatics, and gene therapy.
At MMV IP, we understand that our clients are required to invest significant capital and to engage in extensive research to develop, make, and sell products and methods in pharmaceuticals. Once divulged, such products and methods may be easy to copy. Therefore, a strong patent portfolio is a critical necessity for our clients.
