Established in 2003, we specialize in patent law. The firm represents clients of all sizes, from start-up companies to large multinational corporations, and represents clients in a full range of intellectual property matters. For any of our practice areas described below, please contact us for specific case studies.
We assist clients in identifying inventions and seeking patent protection. We have tremendous success getting patents to issue from applications we file. The firm emphasizes claims drafting to obtain the broadest possible protection, with an eye towards Federal Circuit case law on claim interpretation.
We work with a wide range of technologies, with an emphasis on computer and electronic technologies. The firm counsels clients on developing, implementing, and maintaining a patent program to strategically protect their technology, business, and products.
To obtain the broadest possible protection, we may need to appeal a case to the Patent Trial and Appeal Board (PTAB). The PTAB hears and adjudicates appeals from applicants on adverse patentability decisions by examiners. We have a successful track record winning appeals at the PTAB, resulting in issuance of the patent.
The firm successfully represents clients in patent reexamination proceedings before the United States Patent & Trademark Office. These engagements include matters where the firm has been retained as primary reexamination counsel to defend patent reexamination proceedings, while working together with outside litigation counsel retained for the underlying litigation.
We are admitted before and appeal cases to the United States Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit. Cases before the Federal Circuit require a thorough understanding of appellate law and Federal Circuit practice. Clients are comforted in the knowledge we are available to represent them at any level necessary to obtain the broadest patent protection to which they are entitled.
We are experienced in analyzing patents regarding the infringement or non-infringement and the validity or invalidity of patents. We assist clients in determining whether their product infringes a patent and, if necessary, help identify non-infringement arguments. We assist in locating and analyzing prior art to determine the validity or invalidity of such patents.
The firm represents both patent holders and accused infringers in patent litigation. The firm often counsels clients in the early stages of patent litigation, performing infringement and invalidity analysis of asserted patents and works with clients to develop non-infringement positions and respond to patent holders.
