About Moritz

Moritz Ammelburg, Ph.D., is a principal in the Munich office of Fish & Richardson P.C. ​Moritz is an imaginative life scientist holding a doctorate in biochemistry. His 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. Having a special interest in the dynamic law governing supplementary protection certificates (SPCs), 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 European Patent Office (EPO).
