A company’s entire market may be based on a single patent. This is
especially the case with chemical and biotechnology intellectual property.
As a result, Bacon & Thomas relies on its considerable experience to
counsel clients in securing your proprietary developments and advances in
the major areas of chemical technology and chemical engineering, as well
as in pharmaceuticals, materials science, and biotechnology.
We routinely engage in patent application preparation, filing, and prosecution
before the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO), and we work around the
world through our network of foreign associates. Bacon & Thomas also
frequently conducts patent searches, due diligence reviews, and analysis
of competitor innovations and prepares validity, right-to-use, and infringement
opinions. We work closely with you to develop and maintain strategies for
maximizing the benefit of a patent portfolio.
Ever prepared to meet developments in the chemical and biotechnology fields,
we have a diverse background in these areas from our academic and professional
experience. Bacon & Thomas members have degrees in chemistry, chemical
engineering, biology, or biotechnology. Many members have served in industries
or teaching positions related to the chemical fields or have years of experience
as patent examiners at the USPTO evaluating chemical-related technologies.
We represent companies, universities, and individuals dealing with chemical-
and biotechnology-related inventions around the world.
