Strong patent rights are powerful business tools for emerging and established businesses—providing access to capital, attracting merger partners and protecting investments and market share.

Business strategy. Our patent attorneys work closely with clients to understand and pursue their business objectives. We have earned a reputation for sophisticated and client-focused patent portfolio strategy, acquisition, management and deployment. We strive to find innovative ways to establish, protect and maximize the value of our clients’ technology with solid patent portfolios.

Valuable patents. Many of our patent attorneys both litigate and prosecute patents, and all have a science or engineering background, often with deep experience in the technologies our clients want to protect. Insight from litigation and technical or scientific experience informs our counsel during the invention and patenting processes, facilitating our ability to obtain appropriately broad, defensible patents. We do not work merely to “obtain many patents,” but to develop portfolios that are valuable offensive and defensive business assets.

Industry-experienced attorneys. Our patent prosecution and counseling attorneys have degrees in a variety of scientific areas and most have industry experience working as engineers, inventors, researchers and educators.
