Albert Lee, Ph.D.

Albert Lee has over twenty years of experience in custom synthesis, analytical services, chemical consulting and medicinal chemistry. He is currently managing an investigative analytical laboratory focused on the synthesis of small molecules, solving complex problems involving deformulation (reverse engineering), product failure analysis, contaminant identification, material identification as well as applying these chemical analysis services to legal challenges.

His professional experience focuses on custom synthesis to support contract research, new drug development and intellectual property challenges. Albert Lee supervises a team of chemistry experts experienced with many different types of compounds, including pharmaceutical intermediates, analogs, metabolites, analytical standards (certified by EAG) and controlled substances (DEA Schedule I-IV).

He is based in our St. Louis location, formerly known as Chemir. This chemical analysis services laboratory is known for litigation support in pharmaceutical patent infringement cases, chemistry intellectual property, consulting in product liability matters, technical data review and case evaluations.

Dr. Lee is an experienced expert witness and chemistry consultant in litigation issues involving intellectual property and patent infringement of pharmaceutical and chemical products. He advises legal clients regarding design of experiments and technical strategies. He has presented expert witness testimony in both depositions and courtroom trials.
