Personalised medicine

Personalised medicine is a high-value field, expected to expand significantly over the coming years. Strong IP strategy is key to successfully protecting emerging innovations that hold the potential to transform lives.  

The number of drug approvals in precision medicine is growing rapidly, yet this progress comes with significant legal and technical challenges. From navigating patent eligibility exclusions, to dealing with issues of ownership of data or divided infringement, while ensuring protection covers the constant evolution of assay platforms, good guidance is vital to success. 

Working with leading universities, research charities and pioneering SMEs, HGF’s large personalised medicine team delivers patent drafting and prosecution, due diligence and freedom to operate programmes, along with management of transactional and contentious matters in this revolutionary field.  

Our attorneys have a deep understanding of the challenges in this area.  With extensive in-house experience, we are able to tap into genuine insights to lead our clients’ IP strategies and advise across multiple jurisdictions. HGF’s perspective as European attorneys can help to identify global opportunities for clients from across the globe.
