Betsy Haanes, Ph.D., an intellectual property partner in our Washington D.C. office, recently published a chapter in "Inside the Minds: Developing a Patent Strategy," published by Aspatore. Her chapter, entitled "Refashioning IP Asset Protection Strategies for Biotechnology and BioPharma Clients in View of the New Legal Realities of Subject Matter Eligibility," describes how patent protection and the scope of what is patentable have been limited in recent years. Betsy also provides patent protection strategies for applicants to consider when drafting claims and preparing for examiner interviews.
Betsy advises biotechnology companies on best practices for the worldwide protection of their intellectual property. She focuses on creating innovative, long-term legal strategies that integrate into her clients’ technological and business objectives.
