Stem Cell Technology

Kenyon & Kenyon LLP provides wide-ranging legal expertise on stem-cell-related technologies to many leading universities, research institutes, affiliated start-ups, and distinguished corporate clients. As stem cell research and its applications move from the lab to the clinic, we offer comprehensive legal counsel on topics including preparation and prosecution of patent applications, due diligence, technology transfer, strategic advice and third-party patent clearance.

Our years of experience representing major pharmaceutical and higher-education clients, along with our attorneys’ depth of credentials in life sciences, biotechnology and biopharmaceuticals, uniquely positions us to advise clients across diverse stem cell technological applications such as inter alia, therapeutic use, gene therapy, stem cell isolation, culturing, differentiation techniques and  therapeutic and reproductive cloning.
