As patent laws and the rights of patent holders and applicants continue to evolve as a result of court decisions and legislative initiatives, the protection and exploitation of this valuable intellectual property remains more important than ever to companies of all types. Our Patent Law Group represents clients in all of their patent needs, from litigation and dispute resolution to patent applications and contested patent office proceedings to transactions and strategic counseling, allowing them to maximize revenue, market position and shareholder value while retaining and growing their core assets.
Our group – which includes patent lawyers, patent agents and technology specialists, the majority of whom have advanced degrees in engineering and science and/or practical industry experience – brings a strong combination of technical insight and industry savvy to all of the work we do. With our knowledge of both the courtroom and the boardroom, we add value at every stage of the patent development and protection process.
The industries that we serve represent a cross section of today’s most cutting-edge and successful companies and this diversity of experience is a key differentiator of our practice. These sectors include: academic centers and research institutions; biotechnology; broadcasting and cable providers; chemical; computer; consumer electronics; consumer products; cryptography; e-commerce; energy; engineering and industrial technologies; entertainment; financial services; gaming; health care; Internet; materials science; medical devices; multimedia; new media; pharmaceuticals; publishing; semiconductor; software; telecommunications; video processing; and wireless carriers.
Our patent practice has been widely commended by Chambers USA, which called us a “force to be reckoned with” that has “a wealth of experience representing publicly traded technology companies.” In addition, we were recognized by Corporate Counsel magazine as a “Go-To Law Firm for Leading Technology Companies,” in large part due to our patent work.
