Patent Prosecution

Technical. Astute. Experienced.

One of our clients said of our patent law knowledge and acumen, “there is no one better.”  With that type of reputation to live up to, we won’t rest on our decades of experience, or the fact that patent prosecution has been and continues to be one of our strongest practice areas.  We line our bench with the most knowledgeable professionals in the field. 

Our team of patent attorneys holds advanced degrees – in some cases, doctorates – in many technical and scientific disciplines.  Several of our attorneys are former patent examiners.  It’s the coupling of education and years of experience with up-to-date knowledge of the policies and procedures of the United States Patent and Trademark Office (PTO) that enables us to provide our clients with the most advanced and efficient patent prosecution services.

Our patent attorneys secure proprietary protection, render opinions and provide advice to clients around the world, in sophisticated technological areas such as the biotechnology and pharmaceutical fields; plant science; medical devices; computer hardware and software; the Internet; advanced electronics; semiconductor devices and manufacturing; advanced telephony equipment and circuits; and a wide variety of mechanical systems and devices.  They file and prosecute hundreds of applications in both domestic and foreign patent offices each year…but not without help.  We have a sophisticated docketing and filing system, as well as trained legal support staff, to assist our attorneys in filing, prosecuting and tracking vast numbers of applications and patents throughout the world. 

Because of our robust foreign practice, we work closely with a global network of trusted associates in countries where our clients’ have international patent needs.  Our attorneys file patents applications on a regular basis under the Patent Cooperation Treaty (PCT), in the European Patent Office (EPO), and in foreign countries around the world.
