We focus our practice on regulatory, transactional and pre-litigation matters involving patents. Our clients trust us with patent prosecution, patent portfolio management, counseling, post-grant proceedings, patent licensing, patent infringement risk analysis and mitigation, and enforcement against infringers.

Patent Prosecution

We draft high-quality patent applications, with clear descriptions and strategic claims. We zealously prosecute patent applications before the USPTO and, with the assistance of our foreign associates, before patent offices around the globe. We deliver value and enforceability to our clients.

Patent Portfolio Management

We manage and grow our clients’ patent portfolios to build a strong fence around our clients’ core technologies and markets. We can contain our clients’ competitors with strategically placed patents. We can help our clients capture patentable ideas and establish internal procedures for managing inventions.

Patent Intelligence

We can monitor our clients’ potential infringers’ activities and gather intelligence to support enforcement and licensing of our clients’ patents. We can watch our clients’ competitors’ patent applications and set road blocks to prevent them from becoming threats.

Patent Monetization

We evaluate our clients’ patents for their quality and value. We can actively seek potential licensees and buyers of our clients’ patents, and negotiate the terms of the sale or license on our clients’ behalf.

Defense against Infringement Threats

We can analyze the threat of patent infringement, provide our opinion about the validity of the threat, and recommend actions to defeat or reduce the threat.  We fight back on our clients’ behalf.

Mitigation of Infringement Risks

We can search for patents that pose infringement risks to our clients. We assess these risks, provide freedom-to-operate opinions, and recommend strategic solutions to mitigate these risks. We can integrate this service into our clients’ entire product development processes, from idea generation to commercialization.
