The chemicals, pharmaceuticals and biotechnology industries worldwide rely upon being able to patent inventions in order to protect investment in research and development, and to reap commercial rewards. This text guides the reader through the legal and procedural complexities of the British, European, Japanese and US patent systems, and explains the role of patent practitioners (both in-house and in private practice) in maximizing the commercial potential of their client's or company's innovative products.

The text provides a description of the techniques and industry know-how that underlie successful patent practice and portfolio management and should be of value to all patent agents and practitioners working in the area of patent law.
