Microbes are not only essential for sustaining life on earth, some can be used to help treat medical conditions, produce valuable food and address environmental issues.

Our life science attorneys have expertise in patents directed towards microbial processes for producing valuable polymers, peptides, oils, enzymes, myco-protein, fermentation products for the food and drinks industry, micro-encapsulation, biofuels and microbial reclamation or processing of land and waste material – to name a few.

So whether it is an improved fermentation process for making an alcoholic beverage, or a microbial process for producing a useful plastics material, we are well placed to provide patent advice on how best to protect your innovation.
