Patents

Today’s competitive business environment requires protection and management of inventions and innovative technology. With patents, a delay in filing an application with the patent office can jeopardize your patent rights. Something as simple as publishing or offering an item or service for sale may bar your ability to get a patent for your invention.
Our firm handles the preparation, filing, and prosecution of patent applications before the USPTO as well as international patent filings. We provide counseling and handle complex contracts where patents are involved. We advise clients on patent matters, performing analyses and providing legal opinions regarding freedom to operate, infringement, and validity issues.
We have a broad base of experience in various arts and industries, including oilfield technologies, biotech, telecommunications, computing/software, computer networks, e-commerce, electronics, electromechanical arts, and general mechanical arts. We can help you protect and leverage your inventions to bring value to your business.
