From an inventor’s vision to the grant of a U.S. or foreign patent, our attorneys provide clients with a full range of patent services, including patentability assessment; patent application preparation and prosecution, both in the United States and worldwide; appeals; oppositions; patent maintenance; counseling regarding infringement avoidance; and validity and infringement studies and opinions. Our group is comprised of over 70 attorneys, patent agents and specialists registered at the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office.
Four major concentrations, focused by technical discipline, serve as the foundation of our Intellectual Property – Patents practice: Mechanical; Electronics and Computer Technology; and Biotechnology; and Chemical and Pharmaceutical. In 2021, still in the midst of a global pandemic, we filed over 1,800 patent applications in the United States Patent and Trademark Office, and approximately 1,000 U.S. patents were awarded to our clients.
We have an active foreign patent practice, regularly filing about 130 PCT applications and 1,000 patent applications in over 50 countries worldwide. Several of our attorneys have had extensive involvement in opposition proceedings and hearings before the European Patent Office in Munich. Others have significant experience in managing patent and trademark enforcement proceedings in China.
