Scientific innovation is the principal focus of scientists, as they strive to realize the latest break-through in their particular field of practice. And yet achieving a particular advancement is far too easily confined to the realm of university laboratories and scientific journals, unless it can be properly sold into the commercial sphere. That is what our role as legal counsel means when representing the business and legal interests of scientists, especially with respect to the commercialization of their scientific inventions and innovations.

The commercialization of scientific innovations and inventions is a highly uncertain process, especially without the appropriate professional support and direction. For the objective is to transform a scientific advancement, which may theoretically be revolutionary and earth-shattering, into something that has substantive commercial demand. For the reality is that commercial demand is all too often comes from minor scientific innovations that are effectively commercialized, as opposed to major or radical scientific advancements that have little, if any, known commercial application. As such, the key is to be able to take one's scientific advancement and effectively commercialize it, irrespective of how significant the innovation.

At Neufeld Legal P.C., we understand that commercialization is an imperfect science, often without rhyme or reason. The key is to make the most of your particular opportunity, while retaining the appropriate professional counsel to facilitate this process.
