Our team of patent attorneys has a deep understanding of organic, organometallic and polymer chemistry, electrochemistry, chemical engineering and petrochemicals. They combine this understanding with their IP knowledge and experience to provide quality and effective service to a wide range of industries. Our clients come from diverse sectors of industry such as petroleum refining, plastics, photolithography, pulp and paper, explosives, natural products, chemical synthesis & processes, etc. We have successfully advised our clients in cases related to recycling of polyurethanes, functionalised rubbers, gasoline additives, printing plates and pigments based on metallic complexes.
Following an impressive development in recent years, Material science has become very relevant both in research (nanomaterials, security markers, biomaterials, etc.) and in the industry (composite materials, ceramics, hydrophobic materials, etc.). We have patent attorneys specialised in Materials able to work in nanotechnology, inorganic and material chemistry. Our patent attorneys have successfully advised clients in projects relating to graphene materials, digital enamel inks, composite materials for aircrafts, cellulose nanofibers, synthesis of nanowires, Atomic Quantum Clusters (AQCs), RAMAN security markers, and many others.
We have a long experience in dealing with cases relating to the pharmaceutical industry. Some of our patent attorneys worked previously in this industry, it is within our identity from the very beginning. ABG’s patent attorneys have been collaborating for many years with Spanish and multinational pharmaceutical companies, in therapeutic areas such as oncology, pain, auto-immune diseases, dermatology, etc. Relevant active principles our patent attorneys have been involved with are atorvastatine, finasteride, bislastine, atorvastatine, docetaxel, cyclosporine, fenofibrate, telmisartan or humanized antibodies. We are also the specialists in Supplementary Protection Certificates, having been involved in relevant cases both in Spain and the European Court of Justice.
