Chemistry & Materials
Chemistry and material sciences are changing the way people live, work, and interact. WAVS IP is a true leader in protecting and increasing the value of chemistry innovations, with a deep roster of attorneys with advanced degrees in chemistry, chemical engineering, and materials science from leading universities and research groups.
Our practitioners have extensive experience, including as in-house IP counsel, as patent attorneys and agents, representing leading-edge pharmaceutical companies in all aspects of chemical patent practice.
We represent clients in diverse chemical and materials technologies, including pharmaceuticals, semiconductor processing chemistry, electrochemistry, and biochemical processes including various detection, amplification, and directed evolution processes.
We have particular expertise in synthetic organic chemistry, materials chemistry, chemical engineering, and materials science.
Our clients include both public and private research institutions.
In addition to extensive experience with diagnostics/prognostics and therapeutics, our areas of technical expertise include:
Proteins, genes, ESTs, SNPs
Recombinant DNA techniques
Pharmaceuticals and Biologics
Our practitioners have significant experience in both small molecule therapeutics and biologics.
Our small molecule pharmaceutical practice includes patent prosecution directed to a wide range of medicinal products. Examples include kinase inhibitors, for example for treating transplant rejection, rheumatoid arthritis, ophthalmia, lupus, etc., glycopeptide antibiotics and hormone receptor modulators.
Our biologics practice includes patent prosecution directed to a wide range of medicinal (and other biological) products including vaccines, blood and blood components, somatic cells, stem cells, gene therapy, tissues and tissue engineering, antibodies, recombinant therapeutic proteins, therapeutic microorganisms, and cancer cell targeting systems.
Diagnostics/prognostics information is essential for making decisions in Health Management and a number of related fields. Bringing these innovations to bear requires a unique combination of technical/industry knowledge and legal acumen to ensure their progress in the market. Our areas of expertise include:
WAVS IP has received accolades for our special expertise in the area of bioinformatics. Specifically, we work with scientists and researchers who are interested in technologies that live at the intersection of computation, biology and chemistry. Areas of particular experience include:
Drug Discovery tools including ADME predictors
Modeling three-dimensional structures of proteins and other biological molecules
Mining data from medical records for drawing conclusions about treatment protocols and organizational performance
Trained models (regression, neural networks, etc.)
Processing experimental results to account for internal biases
Various statistical techniques
