Our intellectual property attorneys advise and counsel clients on all issues pertaining to patents.  We provide analyses and opinions on patentability, infringement, and validity, and help develop strategies for acquiring and licensing patents.

Our patent prosecution practice covers diverse fields, including biochemistry, biotechnology, molecular biology, microbiology, genetics and genomics, immunology, pharmaceuticals, medical devices, general chemistry, business and financial methods, electronics and software, and general mechanical.  We file and prosecute patent applications in the United States Patent and Trademark Office and internationally, and in many foreign countries.  We strive to obtain patents with the maximum protection available for an invention, with a focus on making sure our patents will withstand challenge.  Our clients include large organizations, start-ups, and individual inventors, both domestic and foreign.

We handle proceedings before the United States Patent and Trademark Office’s Patent Trial and Appeal Board.  We have participated in successful challenges to third parties’ patents and defended our clients’ patents against challenge.

Our patent litigation experience is extensive.  We represent patent owners and licensees as plaintiffs and we defend companies accused of patent infringement.  Our attorneys have litigated cases in the federal district courts across the country, before the Federal Circuit Court of Appeals, and in the International Trade Commission.
