We are an intellectual property law firm with expertise in patent application preparation (utility and design), prosecution, portfolio strategy, prelitigation counseling, appeals, oppositions, and annuity payment services. We also specialize in the preparation of patent opinions (e.g., freedom-to-operate, patentability, infringement, and validity). We have expertise in a wide variety of scientific disciplines including mechanical, chemical, pharmaceutical, and biotech technologies.
We serve both domestic and international clients to obtain US patent protection and are networked with firms around the world to support international patent portfolios.
We bring the powerhouse experience of a large firm with small firm attention, responsiveness, flexibility, creativity, pragmatism, and rates to achieve our clients’ IP goals. All shareholders have at least 10 years of experience at large law firms and/or as in-house counsel, while our paralegals have extensive experience supporting large entities, including maintaining docketing directly in the client’s own software system.
We pride ourselves on transparency regarding costs, and to this end we provide our clients with budget planning projections, detailed fee schedules, and accurate estimates.
We invest in secure, start-of-the-art cloud-based global docketing software, communications, and document management systems to support both large and small entities.
