Background

​Dr. rer. nat. Moritz Ammelburg is an Associate in Fish & Richardson’s Munich office. Moritz is an imaginative life scientist holding a PhD in biochemistry. Moritz’s practice focuses on patent prosecution in the biotechnology and pharma areas based on his deep understanding of the architecture and function of small compounds as well as macromolecules. Moritz has a special interest in the dynamic law governing Supplementary Protection Certificates. He coordinates the prosecution of several families of SPC applications across Europe. Additionally, Moritz passionately fights for his clients in a growing number of Opposition proceedings before the EPO.
