Mike Snodin Dr Mike Snodin

Dr Mike Snodin

Mike Snodin, has a Masters degree and doctorate in chemistry from Oxford University, as well as over 16 years' experience in the patent profession.

Mike advises companies of all sizes, from start-ups to multinational pharmaceutical firms. He has particular experience and expertise in preparing, handling or advising upon patents (and patent-related matters) in the chemical, pharmaceutical and life sciences fields. Mike regularly speaks at international conferences on a variety of topics, including SPCs, the “Bolar” and research exemptions in Europe and “secondary” pharma patents.

Mike is also one of Europe’s foremost experts on Supplementary Protection Certificates (SPCs). In this respect, Mike has published a number of influential and ground-breaking articles on the topic of SPCs, including articles outlining novel concepts devised by Mike and concerning the calculation of the duration of SPC protection. Two of those concepts have now been accepted by the Court of Justice of the EU, in cases C-125/10 (zero / negative term SPCs) and C-471/14 (use of the notification date of a “centralised” MA).

A selection of Mike’s publications on SPCs can be found in our News & Publications section. Further publications may be found on Mike Snodin’s LinkedIn profile.
