We prepare and help you file provisional, utility, and design patents to help you build an IP portfolio with real market value. We excel at identifying and protecting our clients’ innovations. We handle all aspects surrounding a patent’s lifecycle including: conducting patentability analyses; preparing and prosecuting U.S. and foreign patent applications; managing patent portfolios and technology transfers; and enforcement. Additionally, we are experienced in all aspects of patent prosecution, including patent interference, reexamination, reissue, and appellate proceedings before the USPTO and the Federal Circuit.
From our initial client intake, we go above and beyond simply patenting a client’s invention. Our team’s emphasis on creativity allows us to assist you in identifying what exactly it is that can be patented, trademarked, copyrighted, or kept as a trade secret. We are not a patent mill. Instead, our out-of-the-box thinking helps companies “mine” their intellectual property. We often begin with questions such as “why are you getting a patent?”; “who are your biggest competitors?”; and “what area of dominance do you want to have?” We strongly encourage brainstorming sessions that explore beyond the narrow confines of what was invented and look at the broader landscape of what can be protected. With this approach, we help our clients extract a purposeful set of intellectual property rights that not only hold commercial value, but align with our clients’ goals.
