Patents are a key component of our intellectual property practice. Our attorneys assist clients in all aspects of patents, including counselling, patent drafting, obtaining international patent rights, and litigation. We perform due diligence and negotiate and draft licenses and other IP related agreements. We provide patent opinions including validity, freedom to operate, and infringement. Our work includes patent enforcement and defense, including responding to patent infringers and allegations of patent infringement, and practice before the Patent Trial and Appeal Board that handles Inter Partes Reviews (IPR) and Post-Grant Review (PGR) proceedings. For international patent rights, we routinely file PCT international patent applications and we have an extensive network of law firms around the world that work with us on foreign patent filings. We also frequently act as U.S. counsel to foreign patent applicants seeking U.S. patent rights.
Our Intellectual Property team and the technical advisors with whom we collaborate hold advanced degrees in chemistry, engineering, and other sciences. We focus on a close working relationship with our clients to understand their business and the technology behind their inventions to better assist them in procuring, monetizing, and defending their rights. Our firm has experience with Patent work in the following fields:
- Medical Devices
- Engineering and Mechanical Arts
- Computer and software-related inventions
