The multi-disciplinary field of life sciences combines some of the most innovative and important endeavors in science and technology. Contributions to medical research, health care, and pharmaceuticals have led to better health, longer lives, and significant discoveries in disease prevention and treatment. In a field that is brimming with ingenuity as well as competition, strategic protection of intellectual property rights is critical.
The life sciences attorneys at COJK possess advanced degrees and extensive knowledge in chemistry, microbiology, and the health industry as well as intellectual property law. They provide high-quality legal services combined with an acute business sense, which gives them a thorough understanding of the realities of this market.
Developing pharmaceutical drugs, biomedical devices, and biomedical software can lead to exciting opportunities. However, these efforts require a major investment of time and money, which means that organizations need to address their intellectual property issues sooner rather than later.
