Patent Prosecution and Counseling

Our patent attorneys can help you secure your idea.

Patent prosecution is the process of applying for a patent, communicating with the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) to resolve any matters that may arise during examination of the application, and securing the patent grant. We provide complete patent prosecution services for clients around the world.

We work closely with our clients through all stages of product development, offering advice about the types of patents needed and the timing of the patent filings to best protect their inventions. We also work with our worldwide network of patent law firms to help our clients secure patents in other countries.

We help clients design products and services that do not infringe competitors’ patents. We also advise clients on complex patent licensing issues and business strategies for handling adversarial matters.
