Patent Practice

Our patent attorneys work with clients to provide the most up to date advice and counsel to assist client’s in determining the most strategic ways to protect their ideas and inventions and to allow them to make decisions on patentability and strategy for a successful prosecution to patent coverage.

Our Patent Practice Services consist of:

  • Domestic and International patent preparation and prosecution to protect the inventions that drive innovation and enhance our world
  • Patentability, validity, freedom to operate, and infringement counseling to manage risk and maximize asset potential
  • Strategic portfolio development and management tailored to our client’s unique business needs

Our patent attorneys also collaborate with clients in identifying and taking advantage of opportunities to expand or exploit the client’s patent rights.
Our patent attorneys can handle patent prosecution matters involving all types of technologies and industries, including consumer products, chemical, biotech, pharma, nanotechnology, medical devices, and cosmetics; electronics and software, such as wireless, telecommunications, equipment manufacturing industry standards, and artificial intelligence; semiconductors and circuits; aerospace, automotive, heavy machinery, and robotics; high-tech plastics and glass; consumer products; and renewable energy and petrochemicals.

In addition to the complex world of securing patent protection for our clients, our patent attorneys also provide knowledgeable advice and counsel including due diligence and patent portfolio analysis for mergers and acquisitions to identify risk and opportunity. Here the interplay of patents and business in IP-related transactions are carefully analyzed. This analysis identifies potential risks and benefits, determines effective uses of innovations, optimizes the client’s patent portfolio value, and can improve the clients’ market position.
