Chemistry & Life Science

Chemistry and biotechnology surround us daily in the products we use, the foods we eat, and the pharmaceuticals we take to regain and maintain health. We at Grünecker are keenly aware of the central importance of chemistry in modern industry. We have built teams with diverse technological experience and a deep interest in leveraging this knowledge for your benefit, to create and assert your IP in a competitive market. We pride ourselves on working closely with our clients to understand their commercial goals and proactively suggest forward-looking approaches.

Our chemical team has broad experience in all areas of industrial chemistry, including polymers, fibers, large-scale processes for synthesizing basic molecular building blocks, ceramics, catalysts, batteries, toners, adhesives and lithography.

Our life science team combines deep research experience in molecular biology, biochemistry and organic synthetic chemistry. This interdisciplinary approach is indispensable in the increasingly complex life science field. We have assembled teams of biochemists, biologists, immunologists and organic chemists from some of the best research institutions in the world. You, our client, benefit from their experience in such diverse fields as diagnostics, immunotherapy, antibody engineering, vaccines, genetic engineering, pharmaceuticals (both small molecule and biologicals) and recombinant protein production, to name but a few.

Further, we are also intimately familiar with the unique requirements established by patent offices for obtaining protection for biotechnological subject matter and available opportunities such as supplementary protection certificates (SPCs) to maximize the rewards conferred by IP rights.
