The client was one of the leading innovation-driven pharmaceutical companies in the APAC region, which has a history of working in synergy with its global network of technology and commercialization partners to develop and market unique, safe therapeutic compounds and products using ingredients from natural resources.
As a result of its extensive research and development program, client has a fast-growing portfolio of patented and patent-pending platform technologies. These cutting-edge technologies offer ground-breaking opportunities for the development and commercialization of innovative ‘best-in-class’ products in areas of high unmet need.
The client regularly files for patents for its inventions and products. The patents have validity and need periodic renewals.
The client needs complete documentation and various process requests from the patent office in order to obtain or retain the patents. Each of these requests has certain deadlines, failing to meet results in loss of applicant’s patent rights (in this case, client’s rights on exclusivity of the technology).
