In the fields of chemistry, pharmacy and biotechnology, substances or mixtures of substances can be protected by patents as such as well as manufacturing processes and new uses for existing substances. This is particularly essential in fields with restricted admission in order to make the high expenses in research and development economically feasible. Based on the present results and technical expertise, the crucial point is to manage the best possible protection. This requires the ability to recognize an underlying general principle for the actual result and to formulate the corresponding patent application which protects this general inventive principle. Due to many years of industry experience with several hundred patent applications in these fields, we can create good conditions for it.
