To permit our clients to build a patent portfolio that is integrated with their business strategies, we seek early on to understand the strategic goals of each client. We also counsel our clients on how to best build a portfolio that maximizes both core technologies and non-core technologies.
Likewise, we counsel clients on processes and procedures for identifying potentially patentable technology and prioritizing inventions based on strategic goals.
We also work with our clients to ensure they and their employees—inventors, and engineers—understand the patent process and follow policies and guidelines that protect against inadvertent loss of rights in an invention.
In this regard, we routinely conduct industry and in-house seminars on the patentability process, including procedures on documenting the conception of an invention, limitations on public written disclosures of the invention (such as in marketing materials or research papers), use of diligence in pursuing an invention, and the disclosure requirements necessary to ensure that any issued patent is as defensible as possible.
The firm provides design patent prosecution and counseling services in a wide range of technical and business areas, in almost every industry, and in both the retail and commercial markets.
