Biotechnology & FDA Law
The drive to find solutions to global issues such as over population, disease epidemics and the climate change crisis is spurring major innovation in the medical, environmental and agricultural sciences. The significant investment required to develop new technologies and profit potential they hold make securing exclusive intellectual property rights through patents essential for individual and corporate developers alike. However, securing biotechnology patents may also involve understanding and complying with laws and regulations established by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA).
The intellectual property law firm of Peacock Myers, P.C. has the expertise in biotechnology and law practice you need to safeguard your information and inventions.
The patent application process alone is complicated and best navigated with the help of a registered patent attorney. However, to adequately prosecute a biotechnology patent, your attorney must understand the information/invention to be protected.

When to Seek Patent Protection
Biotechnology is a fast-paced and highly competitive field, making new discoveries, processes and technologies extremely valuable. To protect the profitability of your idea/invention, you must secure exclusive intellectual property rights. However, the FDA approval process makes patent prosecution a lengthy process.
It is in the best interests of an individual or corporate developer to seek legal counsel early about the possibility of a biotechnology patent—before you disclose information to others. The lawyers at Peacock Myers, P.C. can help you determine the patentability of your idea/invention and quickly move forward with the patent application to secure “patent pending” protection.
