Patent Law

In addition to their legal education and experience, our attorneys are educated and experienced in technical disciplines ranging from electrical, mechanical and aerospace engineering to chemistry. With this training and experience, we clearly understand our clients' technical and legal needs.

We work with inventors, engineers and scientists throughout the development process to help determine how best to protect our clients' inventions, know-how and other assets. We obtain patents in the computer software, business methods, mechanical, electrical, chemical, medical, aerospace and telecommunications fields, among others.

From the initial stage of evaluating the patentability of a new invention, we are prepared to assist. Our patent attorneys and agents prepare and file patent applications both in the United States and in foreign jurisdictions, and prosecute applications when a Patent Office objects to or rejects a filed patent application. We will also help maintain issued patents worldwide throughout the life of the patent to ensure our clients maximize the patents' full potential.

Our attorneys help clients identify and take steps to avoid violating legitimate rights of their competitors. We provide our clients with opinions in all patent areas, including validity, patentability, infringement and workarounds.
