How we helped this pharmaceutical organisation protect their formulations

We have a long standing client relationship with one of the leading pharmaceutical companies in the UK.  We provide a full range of intellectual property services to support their business needs. This includes ensuring the novel formulations developed by their R&D team are fully protected. We manage a number of patent families covering multiple jurisdictions. We also ensure any license and assignment agreements meet the commercial needs of the business and are recorded at the relevant intellectual property offices.

When the client wishes to launch a new formulation, we provide freedom to operate searches in the jurisdictions of commercial importance to their business, as well as providing infringement opinions and advising on design-around options in relation to existing third-party patents.  Our client has also been active in partnering with or acquiring other organisations and as such we have been on-hand to carry out the required due diligence work relating to any intellectual property being acquired.

We provide full support in protecting our client’s brands by applying for and registering trade marks on their behalf around the World. This not covers their company brand and subsidiaries which have been brought under their umbrella over the years, but also the vast array or products and formulations developed by them.

The relationship with our client remains strong not only because of the high quality and timely work carried out by the team at Bailey Walsh for them, but also in large part due to the trust which has been earned and nurtured over the years.
