About Caleb

Caleb Bates, Ph.D., works with emerging and established companies in biotech and pharma to develop patent portfolios that support his clients’ growth strategies through protecting their valuable intellectual property. Whether his clients aim to bring a drug to market, partner with another company, or position themselves for acquisition, Caleb provides forward-thinking strategies that set his clients up for future success.

Caleb has extensive experience in international patent prosecution, working to maximize market exclusivity for his clients in jurisdictions around the world. In recent years, Caleb has managed the worldwide prosecution strategy for a clinical-stage biopharmaceutical company, including a portfolio of more than 10 patent families, each filed in over 40 countries.

In addition to advising clients on IP strategy, Caleb routinely counsels clients in licensing, buy- and sell-side due diligence, and freedom to operate and patentability analyses. Throughout his career, Caleb has developed patent portfolios that have generated over $10 billion in deal value.

Caleb received his Ph.D. in medicinal chemistry from the University of Michigan, where his graduate research involved the design, synthesis, and mechanistic evaluation of small molecule modulators of eukaryotic gene transcription. When not in the office, Caleb enjoys hiking in the mountains of Northern California with his dog, Oberon.
