Global Intellectual Property Protection

Research institutes, bioscience companies and individual inventors are the heart of the innovation economy but they face more challenges than ever when it comes to commercializing their inventions.

Uncertainty around the interpretation of U.S. patent laws makes it harder than ever for bioscience inventions to receive patent protection. Inventions involving products of nature, laws of nature and abstract ideas face significant hurdles in achieving patent protection.

Gorman IP Law is here to help. We are a patent prosecution law firm that focuses on helping inventors secure patent protection so they can take their innovation to market and build successful businesses.
