Extending Patent Term

Under certain circumstances, the term of a patent for an active pharmaceutical or agrochemical ingredient can be extended beyond the usual 20 years by SPCs and pediatric extensions. HOFFMANN EITLE has experts in this niche area of the law, and has been at the forefront of case law development through active involvement in numerous proceedings before the Federal Patent Court, the Federal Court of Justice and the European Court of Justice.
