As a member of the Food & Agribusiness industry group, George leverages his scientific knowledge and legal acumen for the benefit of his business clients as they pursue exclusive patents or trademarks in biotechnology, chemistry, pharmacy and medical devices. He drafts and prosecutes U.S. and foreign patent applications, completes due diligence on a number of intellectual property issues, and prepares freedom-to-operate letters and license agreements. He is a registered patent attorney.

With a technical background in molecular and cellular biology, microbiology and immunology, George advises in the areas of modified oligonucleotides, transgenic animals, plant biotechnology, gene therapies, antibodies, protein chemistry, molecular cloning and cell culture. He counsels technology and biotech companies, particularly with respect to biologically similar entries into the marketplace.

Moreover, in light of the enactment of the America Invents Act, George also advises and represents clients in derivation proceedings, supplemental examinations, post-grant reviews, inter partes reviews and ex parte re-examination at the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office. George provides counsel for all businesses, with particular emphasis on those in China, Taiwan, Korea, Singapore, Japan, Vietnam and India with respect to intellectual property, biotechnology and commercial enterprises.
