We are Symbiosis IP

We are a patent attorney and IP commercial advisory firm that exclusively serves the life science industry. 

Symbiosis IP has a wealth of experience in working closely to provide academic institutions and early stage start-up companies with patent attorney and IP commercial advisory services. This experience enables us to develop IP that drives new businesses forward whatever their complexity. We also work with established businesses and household names to acquire and defend their IP rights.

We are committed to providing the highest quality service; to ensure this we employ attorneys and commercialisation experts with higher degrees and post-doctoral research experience across a broad range of technical disciplines in the bioscience sector. This post-doctoral research experience enables us to fully understand the technology behind your ideas and maximise the protection we can acquire for you. We also undertake continuing professional development to keep up-to-date on issues that affect our clients.

We understand that protection for IP can be expensive. We have streamlined our business to maximise efficiency and the associated cost savings are passed onto our clients via our highly-competitive charging rates. To help you plan ahead we can provide cost estimates for any stage of the patenting process with reasonable levels of reliability. 

Our priority is to develop long-lasting, mutually-beneficial relationships that maximise the benefit that your technology can bring to your business.

Life sciences sector experience

Our senior legal team have been working in life science and chemistry for decades and so we have gained a wealth of experience and expert knowledge in many aspects of patent drafting, prosecution and enforcement in the UK, Europe and internationally. Our commercial advisory team is similarly experienced, and so can draw on an extensive knowledge of sector-specific licensing arrangements and market standards to provide robust commercial support as our clients’ IP portfolios develop.

Our expertise enables us to tailor our services to suit our clients’ needs, with a view to fostering long-term relationships that are founded on collaboration and loyalty.

We have established relationships with associates around the world who share our business values and it is with these associates that we work to safeguard our clients’ overseas interests.

Our skills include expertise in personalised medicine, drug delivery, therapeutics, regenerative medicine, vaccines, antibodies, gene therapy, diagnostic/ prognostic tests, medical and veterinary devices, small molecule therapeutics, formulations, pharmaceutical compositions, recombinant animal and plant materials, biofuels and clean technologies.
