Providing business insight at the molecular level

Innovations in chemical and materials science are complex and continually evolving. Creating and implementing an effective strategy for protecting these innovations demands in-depth understanding of underlying technologies—from synthetic polymers to biological processes—plus broad knowledge of global market and legal trends.

Lando & Anastasi brings together this rare combination of scientific, business, and legal insight. We have significant professional experience in the chemical and materials science industries, including field experience that gives us “real world” perspective. As attorneys, we have helped companies of all sizes protect their valuable IP assets, from innovative chemical compounds and ceramics to process controls. Few IP law firms worldwide can match our knowledge and experience in the area of environmental chemistry and “clean” and “green” technologies.

This expertise, together with our years of IP law experience—including hundreds of due diligence assignments in the chemical and materials science industry—enables us to:

  • Provide strategic analysis of commercially important intellectual property assets, from novel compounds and materials to breakthrough processes. We look both “upstream” and “downstream” in the product spectrum to help identify the full commercial potential for client innovations—both now and in the future.
  • Develop and implement a comprehensive, customized plan for protecting each client’s valuable IP assets, in alignment with their business strategy—including whether, how, and where to file for patent protection.
  • Provide comprehensive IP portfolio management and support, including due diligence, transactions, patent and trademark prosecution, and litigation.
  • Help negotiate the sale, acquisition, or licensing of proprietary scientific and technology assets.
  • Protect valuable brands with strategic trademark counseling, clearance, and portfolio management.
