The field of gene editing has really exploded over the last ten years, accelerated by innovations in the use of CRISPR technologies. Our attorneys have been expanding their expertise in this area throughout this period, assisting clients in patenting gene editing technologies and also in opposing patents owned by third parties, such as the foundation CRISPR patents.
That expertise encompasses, but expands beyond, CRISPR, also including technologies such as Zinc Finger Nucleases, TALENs, and base editors. Whether the innovation concerns the fundamentals of the gene editing technique itself, or whether the innovation is more focused on the editing of a specific gene sequence, our attorneys apply their expertise to protect our clients’ efforts to bring gene editing technology into the clinic.
Gene editing has the potential to radically improve patients’ lives, and we are proud of the support we provide to our clients in this area.
