Hemant is a strategic executor who has provided his clients with a comprehensive approach to IP protection – incorporating the influence of key decisions by the courts in designing search, protecting innovation, managing product development risk, and monetizing markets – in numerous technology areas including those that are emerging like AIDD that impact macromolecular design and activity.
