Abel & Imray is a firm of Patent and Trade Mark Attorneys with offices in Cardiff, London, and Bath. We have been based in Cardiff for over 10 years and work with a large number of Welsh clients.
We have particular experience in the field of life sciences. Our attorneys possess a wealth of expertise in all fields of biotechnology, pharmaceuticals, and medical technology. Many of the attorneys have post-graduate or post-doctoral experience in research and in industry.
Our clients in the bioscience and pharmaceutical fields include international and British companies, from large corporations to SMEs. We are extensively involved in prosecution work before the European Patent Office in this subject matter area, and have been involved in opposition and appeal proceedings in a number of important high-value cases.
We are experienced in freedom-to-operate and due diligence investigations, working, for example, for large corporations seeking to make acquisitions and also for smaller companies seeking to attract partners. Our attorneys work closely with colleagues from other disciplines where their expertise would be of benefit to a client.
