Extend the duration of your EU patents with SPCs

Due to the need to protect public health, pharmaceutical products in the EU, once patented and produced, must go through meticulous review before they can be sold. Completing this process may take several years and it cannot be expedited even if patents might expire before an MA is earned. Dennemeyer & Associates can help you obtain any necessary SPCS to keep your pharmaceutical patents from lapsing in the interim without jeopardizing your compliance.
