Represented Emageon Inc., a publicly traded provider of healthcare-related, dynamic user interface technologies and software for managing medical images for healthcare entities, in connection with patent and licensing matters. The firm analyzed a number of third party patents to provide this client with clearance and patentability opinions. The analysis focused on determining whether there were any patents that would limit Emageon’s proposed products or that would impact Emageon’s ability to obtain patent protection. Several years later, a third party contacted Emageon and suggested that Emageon needed to license for one of the third party’s patents. Based on the analysis of the patents in connection with the clearance and patentability opinions, the firm was able to identify patents that would invalidate or substantially limit the scope of this third party’s patent, and were able to successfully negotiate without the need for a license. The client’s application related to this technology has since been allowed in the United States.
