Andreas´ expertise extends to all aspects of intellectual property protection in the fields of pharmaceuticals, biotechnology and biochemistry.

He has particular experience in grant, opposition and appeal proceedings before the European Patent Office. He regularly prepares freedom-to-operate, validity and due diligence analyses for clients.
A particular achievement has been the creation of an extensive patent portfolio for a successful/leading opioid-based analgesic.
"Andreas Ledl is a skilled portfolio manager with an instinct for commercialisation strategies. A biochemist by training, Ledl has made himself instrumental to clients in the cutting-edge RNA space. His sectorwide knowledge lends itself to FTO analyses and due diligence."

"The collaboration with Andreas Ledl and Eva Dörner has become indispensable for us. Andreas Ledl’s level-headed manner and his focus on addressing all involved parties and presenting problems in an abstract way is second to none. Eva Dörner’s chemical expertise undoubtedly rivals that of our in-house chemists while always being one step ahead in negotiations with patent lawyers on the other side. Both leave any ego behind and always have the best possible result for their client in mind. I haven’t seen it that often."

"Die Zusammenarbeit mit Andreas Ledl und Eva Dörner ist für uns nicht mehr wegzudenken. Andreas Ledls besonnene Art und sein Fokus darauf, alle am Tisch sitzenden abzuholen und Probleme abstrahiert zu präsentieren sucht seinesgleichen. Eva Dörners chemische Expertise kann ohne Zweifel mit unseren In-House Chemikern mithalten, während sie in Verhandlungen mit Patentanwälten der anderen Seite immer einen Schritt voraus ist. Beide lassen jegliches Ego außen vor und haben immer das bestmögliche Ergebnis für ihren Mandanten im Sinn. Habe ich in der Form nicht oft erlebt."
– Legal 500 Germany, 2023
