Patent Protection

We work in multiple technical fields and help clients from beginning to end: searching, evaluating, identifying patentable and commercially valuable ideas; preparing, filing, and prosecuting patent applications; obtaining, maintaining, and enforcing patent rights.

We are experienced in post-grant proceedings and contested matters in the district courts and before the USPTO.

We also provide counseling and engage in transactional work related to patent assignments, licensing, portfolio audits and management, and monetization.
