The nascent European cannabis industry is forecast to undergo huge growth over the next decade, possibly eclipsing the US and Canadian combined market.

Innovations in the growing medicinal cannabis, CBD and hemp sectors are potentially patentable and companies that realise these opportunities by obtaining patent protection will have a significant advantage in the market-place.

We have patent attorneys with specific scientific expertise in plants, having PhDs in plant science and genetics, as well as legal expertise in the patentability and protection issues that are specific to plants and plant varieties.  Because of this expertise, we have been sought out by companies innovating in the North American cannabis market and have been advising for many years on obtaining exclusive rights in Europe in this sector.

Our patent attorneys also work closely with colleagues who specialise in providing commercial, regulatory, litigation and investment advice to companies operating in the cannabis industry.
