Akkas & Associates Turkish Law Firm’s client representation ranges from single inventors to large companies, our goal for each client is always the same: to guide our client through the maze of regulations and procedures involved in obtaining a design patent so as to secure a design patent commensurate with the goals and business strategy of the client. In this regard, our attorneys assist clients to develop intellectual property portfolios that serve specific business objectives so as to yield clear strategic returns.

In many cases, this means seeking the broadest claims to which an invention is entitled so as to foreclose competitors from the market share. In other cases, this may involve the filing of defensive patents to ensure that a client can operate in a space uninhibited by their competitors. As corporate initiatives are increasingly driven by intellectual property, the quality of patent and design patent prosecution advice rendered to a client can have enormous financial consequences.

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.
