Whilst working across all areas of biotechnology, antibody therapeutics are a major focus of Vicki’s work, and she handles cases in this area for UK, US, Scandinavian and Japanese companies. Vicki advises clients and foreign attorneys on how to draft antibody applications to optimise protection and to maximise the chances of securing allowance at the European Patent Office, particularly in relation to overcoming objections of lack of inventive step. Other areas of interest include diagnostic assays, screening methods, personalised medicine and antimicrobials.
