After four years as a research scientist in a large biotech company (Novo Nordisk A/S, Denmark), in 1996 Peter took a turn in his career and moved to the patent department within the same company; he passed the European Qualifying Examination (EQE) in the year 2000. He has sound experience in all kinds of work related to biotechnology and chemistry patents, such as patent drafting, examination, opposition and appeal, searches and freedom-to-operate opinions. He has prosecuted European and PCT applications and has also been involved in substantive patent work related to US patent applications.
