Biotechnology : benefiting from historical and recognised IP expertise to serve biotechnology

Biotechnology is an integral part of Regimbeau’s history. By working for several decades with pioneering and innovative companies and the best research laboratories in the industry, Regimbeau has acquired extensive experience in the field of Intellectual Property applied to biotechnology.

Securing and creating value around your projects at every stage of their development.

Biotechnology is an integral part of our daily lives. Life science engineering is everywhere, particularly in the food, health, cosmetics, chemical, energy production and environmental sectors.

Regimbeau brings together a team of highly technical experts whose skills cover all areas of biotech: microbiology, virology, therapeutic targets, immunology, vaccines, personalised medicine, diagnoses, stem cells, cell lines, genetic engineering, protein engineering, bioproduction, etc.

A dedicated team is set up for each project, based on the respective expertise and experience of our Counsels, who are aware of your challenges and constraints and will be able to assist you in securing and creating value around your projects at each 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 biotechnology innovations

  • 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 (in vitro, preclinical…) 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. biotech 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.
  • 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 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.
  • Investors. Our teams will be able to assist you in presenting a clear and controlled strategy for the protection and management of your assets, but also to answer investors’ specific questions.
