Intellectual Property (IP), trade secret, and patent disputes are a significant part of the health care, diagnostics, medical device, pharma and biotech industries around which disputes can lead to litigation. Common issues are whether a result claimed in a patent is valid or whether a result can be reproduced using the methods and equipment available at the time of the issuance of a patent claim. Other questions can arise around the uniqueness of a method and the commercial application.
Our scientists are fully aware of the importance of secrecy, confidentiality, record keeping and patent law for client litigation issues. Through our initial MarinBio conversations with you and your legal representatives, as a MarinBio client, you control how communications occur, whether through emails, phone calls, videoconferences, in person meetings or written or other types of interactions and records.
Prior to issuing any MarinBio reports, we will discuss with you how the results are to be presented. Conclusions are only included if you determine they should be after we present and discuss the results of the litigation project. MarinBio contract data, communication, reports and notebooks are strictly confidential and secured. Our scientists will discuss with you how you can best use the scientific results for your case. Our professional Ph.D. scientists have been deposed and have testified as expert witnesses on the successful behalf of our clients.
There is more to working in the litigation area than just the results of the lab work. Our experience at MarinBio, in supporting the entire litigation effort, enhances the outcomes of our client’s litigation requirements.
