Chemistry : assisting you to fully master your intangible assets, in all areas of chemistry

Our team of experts has acquired a great deal of experience in the field of intellectual property applied to the chemical industry by assisting pioneering and innovative companies and the best research laboratories in the sector, for the past several decades.

Creating value around your projects and protecting your assets, regardless of your business sector.

Chemistry is an integral part of every product we use in our daily lives: the polymers in our packaging, our cleaning products, our personal care products, our medicines, our beverages, our building materials, our water treatment.

Chemistry is the basis for new materials building the technologies of tomorrow: hydrogen cars, alternatives to natural resources, high-tech products, greener, more flexible and more efficient products. It is faced with new challenges: green chemistry and respecting natural resources and the environment to build a more ecological world respectful of the planet.

The skills of Regimbeau’s team of highly technical experts cover all areas of chemistry: drugs, health, connected products, cosmetics, food products, natural extracts, organic synthesis, environmental chemistry, bioplastics, polymers, coatings, construction materials, batteries, fuel cells, decarbonation and CO2 capture.

A dedicated team is set up for each project to secure and create value around your projects, at every stage of their development.

We put our knowledge of your needs and our understanding of your limits at your service to help you build and control a portfolio of assets adapted to your protection and development strategy, but also to your management of various risks such as your communication, co-ownerships, inventors, partnerships, collaborations, competitors, funding bodies and investors.

Identifying, defending and enhancing the value of your innovations in chemistry

  • Protecting and securing your innovations in close collaboration with the inventors and/or project leaders is a priority, while taking into account your schedule and budget. Our teams evaluate the needs for technical experiments with you, to strengthen your protection and meet the requirements of patent offices for the acquisition but also the defence of your rights. 
  • Optimising your protection strategy is part of our mission, by defining with you where, when and in which language to protect your invention and by drawing up, if necessary, a programme of subsequent or simultaneous protection. If necessary, we put together pairs of Counsels, combining their technical expertise (e.g. chemistry and devices involving notions of mechanics, health and artificial intelligence) to serve your projects, however complex they may be.
  • Identifying and enhancing the value of your know-how. Not all of your results and data are intended to be disclosed in a patent application, but they are no less valuable. Our teams will recommend an appropriate management of your know-how.
  • Controlling the chain of rights is essential to avoid any (unpleasant) surprises during an audit, assignment or concession of your assets. This may concern the ownership of rights, for example in the case of co-ownerships, collaborations or partnerships, but also any issue regarding the designation of inventors or their remuneration.
  • Audit. Whether your portfolio is audited or you wish to have a portfolio audited, our teams will be able to assist you in identifying strengths, weaknesses and other sensitive points, to assess risks and provide solutions, if necessary.
  • Monitoring. Our teams will work with you to develop the strategic and/or competitive watch to meet your specific or recurring needs. They will determine with you the level of useful information and, if necessary, the frequency of our involvement. They will adapt at any time to your changing strategies.
  • Freedom to operate: We will assist you in assessing the freedom to operate your product prior to its development or launch in relation to your competitors’ titles.
  • Pre-litigation and litigation. Whether you are the target of (pre-)litigation or you decide to assert your rights, our teams will be able to assess each situation as well as the inherent risks, and propose an appropriate strategy taking into account your time constraints and your budget. Our teams have extensive experience of opposition and appeal proceedings, both in attack and defence, as well as litigation before the French courts. We also know that it may be appropriate to shorten or defuse a dispute and our teams are able to assist you in any type of negotiation.
  • Assessing your IP assets. Certain key stages in the life of your business will require a valuation of your IP assets (partnerships, capital raising, …). A team, specifically set up for each valuation, will be able to understand your technology, your business and your markets and will establish the value of each of your assets or group of assets.
  • Capital raising/acquisition: Our teams will be able to assist you in the event of due-diligence and allow you to present a clear and controlled strategy for the protection and management of your assets, as well as to specifically answer investors’ questions. We can also assist you in analysing the assets of a company you wish to acquire.
