Contrary to popular belief, the goal of successful patent prosecution is not merely to move an application through the examination process, but also to draft language that would persuade a court or jury during inevitable enforcement litigation. As such, our patent services include the following:

• Patentability search and opinions
• Patent application preparation, filing & prosecution
• International patent prosecution
• Patent licensing and negotiation
• Patent infringement enforcement and litigation

Please note that our patent team consists of qualified academics in the fields of engineering (aerospace, automotive, aviation, electronics, and manufacturing) and biochemistry (cosmetics, pharmaceuticals, polymers). Additionally, we have had considerable success protecting notoriously hard-to-patent business methods.
