In biotech, like in many sectors, patents are used to increase the potential return of an investment, defend an idea from competitors and bring benefit to a business. In the final session of the Spring 2017 series, our speaker will introduce what an IP is, how to obtain them, and how businesses in the biotech sphere can use them to maximum effect.
GUEST SPEAKER: LUCY WILLIAMS
CHANDLER HOUSE, 2 WAKEFIELD STREET, LONDON WC1N 1PF (6.30PM TO 8PM)
Dr. Lucy Williams, European Patent Attorney, J A Kemp
After obtaining her PhD in developmental biology from University of Cambridge, Lucy decided to become a patent attorney. She chose J A Kemp because of the size and diversity of the firm itself and its Biotechnology and Life Sciences Group.
As a patent attorney Lucy has a variety of roles. Some of her responsibilities include acting as an intermediary between clients and patent examiners, patent prosecution and drafting new applications and oppositions.
