Warren Woessner of Schwegman, Lundberg & Woessner is a nationally-recognized patent attorney with nearly three decades of experience focusing on chemical patent law, including biotechnology, pharmaceuticals, vaccines, medical treatments, diagnostics, and biofuels and agricultural chemistry. He co-founded the Biotechnology Committee of the Minnesota Intellectual Property Law Association. He has also chaired the Chemical Practice and Biotechnology Committees of AIPLA and is a current member of the Amicus Committee. One example of Woessner’s impressive resume includes his role in helping the University of Minnesota patent the powerful HIV/AIDS drug Abacavir. If the University had not been able to patent and license the results of their research, companies could have developed drugs based on it without paying the U of M a dime. Instead, the university benefits from royalties in the millions.
