Andréanne Auger’s practice focusses on strategic counselling and management of intellectual property assets for companies primarily in the areas of medical devices, clean tech, biochemistry, molecular and cellular biology and chemistry. Andréanne has over 10 years of experience building patent portfolios that enable small to medium size companies to attract funding, facilitate partnerships, and secure market shares.
Andréanne’s practice extends to providing in-house intellectual property management services during which she works from within the company to coordinate between the various groups such as R&D, marketing and regulatory departments to put in place and/or manage an intellectual property program that is aligned with the company’s business objectives.
