Spruson & Ferguson has an established practice for clients in the biotechnology, pharmaceutical and life sciences industries.
Our patent attorneys working in the group’s life sciences team are technically qualified in areas including genetics, biophysics, molecular biology, microbiology, biomedical engineering, chemistry and biochemistry and the majority are qualified to PhD level.
With our presence in Asia-Pacific, we are positioned to assist clients with their patent portfolios in this rapidly expanding industry.
Our strengths in the biotechnology field were recognised by the Commonwealth Government of Australia when a multi departmental government agency, Biotechnology Australia, commissioned Spruson & Ferguson to present a training course to over 550 participants around Australia. As an accompanying text for the course we developed the Biotechnology IP Management Manual which has now acquired international recognition as a valuable resource.
We recognise the importance of the continuing professional and scientific development. Many of our team are members of, or play active roles in, associations such as AusBiotech, the Australian Society for Biochemistry and Molecular Biology, the Society of Biology, the Australian Society for Microbiology and the Royal Australian Chemical Institute.
