Today, companies large and small are valued less by the buildings and equipment they own and more by the ideas they create. Companies need sound strategies to procure and protect their intellectual property and increase their value. While many law firms are able to register patents, we formulate long-term protection plans based on the needs of our clients and plans for the future.
We have substantial litigation experience and are thus able to ensure that every patent application we draft reflects the lessons learned in mediation, arbitration, or litigation. Nothing sharpens an attorney’s ability to be critical of patent prosecution work better than seeing whether patents prove to be enforceable in court. An attorney who has witnessed the consequences during trial of a sloppy patent disclosure, an unnecessary limitation in a claim, or a careless concession, will forever after be vigilant against making such a mistake in his or her own patent prosecution work. Our patent lawyer advises clients in the following areas:
- Responding to office actions
- Procuring patents and trademarks
- Developing intellectual property protection strategies
- Patent appeals
- Patent reexaminations
- Patent reissue proceedings
- United States Patent and Trademark Office practice areas
