chemicalChemical

At BSKB, we combine industry knowledge with intellectual property law expertise. That’s why all of the intellectual property law attorneys and technical advisors in our Chemical Practice Group have either undergraduate or graduate degrees in chemistry or chemical engineering. Many of us began our careers as patent examiners at the United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO), chemists, process engineers or professors.

Our diverse technical backgrounds and experiences help us to better understand complex chemistries and highly technical engineering issues. We prepare and prosecute hundreds of chemical patent applications in the USPTO, and various foreign countries, each year.

We represent pharmaceutical and chemical companies around the world and have prosecuted chemical patents in the areas of polymer chemistry, chemical processing and synthesis, catalysts, materials science, organic and inorganic chemistry, pharmaceutical chemistry, physical chemistry and nanotechnology.
