This pure patent attorney firm is very visible in pharmaceuticals and chemicals patents, the two main pillars of work. The patent attorneys are often seen in high-profile proceedings, e.g. for Hormosan concerning Truvada. But IBH already reacted two years ago to the upheavals in the pharmaceuticals industry and shifted capacities to other sectors. Since then, it has focused more on patents on the interface with electronics and mechanics, e.g. bioinformatics or medical technology. Unlike last year, IBP grew again with a new patent attorney.
Patent prosecution with an excellent reputation in the chemicals, pharmaceuticals and biotech sectors.
