HAPPY CLIENTS

Our clients rave about us, and keep coming back. We establish successful long-term relationships.

We apprenticed at century-old institutions and learned from the sharpest legal minds till we mastered our skills.  We are well-versed in the tried-and-true methods, and we know there is no substitute for experience.  We have picked up some new tricks along the way; techniques to incorporate empirical data and advanced analytics to improve efficiency.  We blend the new, but we never forget the old.  Our aim is to deliver the highest quality legal work in a cost-efficient manner.

PATENT PROSECUTION

We have obtained hundreds of patents for our clients, small and large.  Whether you are interested in obtaining a single patent, or a portfolio of hundreds, we know that a thoughtful approach to patent preparation and prosecution creates value.  Our attorneys are technically trained in various disciplines and experts in medical devices and computer software.  We use the latest technology so that work is completed efficiently and ahead of schedule. We give you a reasonable estimate and we stick to it.

PATENT SEARCHING

Patent searching is as much as an art as a science.  Many people do not understand the limitations of keyword searches and have a difficult time finding relevant results.  This is why clients turn to us to help with patent searching.  Whether they wish to evaluate the patentability of an invention, to find relevant prior art that can be used against competitors in a third-party submission or to understand the general patent landscape in a specific field, our attorneys are skilled and experienced at uncovering the most relevant search results.

IP DUE DILIGENCE

Intellectual Property may be the key driver in a merger or acquisition, or just an ancillary consideration.  We can study IP portfolios and evaluate strengths and weaknesses.  Our investigation will help you better understand the value of the assets in question.   We also perform competitor portfolio monitoring, acting as our clients' eyes and ears to keep them abreast of the newest trends.

LEGAL OPINIONS

We are here to advise.  Whether you are looking for freedom to operate, or need an invalidity or noninfringement opinion, we provide guidance and clarity.  We can help you make intelligent, informed decisions by uncovering risks and potential benefits.
