European Biotech Patent Case Law Webinar

European Patent Attorneys Simon O'Brien and Nathaniel Wand present our latest webinar update of new and important EPO biotechnology patent case law.

Webinar content

The webinar will include discussion of the latest European biotech patent case law developments.


Simon O'Brien was appointed partner in 2010 and is a Chartered and European Patent Attorney. His area of expertise encompasses both biological and chemical subject matter including the fields of molecular biology, biotechnology, biochemistry, food technology and nutrition, diagnostics, pharmaceuticals, and polymer chemistry. Simon advises on all aspects of patent law, including patent drafting and prosecution, opposition and appeal proceedings.

Simon has lectured at numerous conferences on life science issues in the patent arena, particularly in the fields of personalised medicine. IAM Patent 1000 writes that Simon's "contentious experience means that he can turn a weak biochemical patent into an unimpeachable one before the examiners."

Associate Nathaniel Wand joined D Young & Co in 2017 and specialises in biophysical chemistry. His work includes broad areas of patent law, including drafting, prosecution, oppositions and validity opinions. This has included technologies in a diverse range of fields including molecular biology, biotechnology, biochemistry, food technology, diagnostics and therapeutics.
