We work closely with our clients to develop patent portfolios that provide a sustainable competitive advantage to the business in the US and internationally. We also help leverage the portfolio for both offensive and defensive purposes. We have secured US and international patent rights for companies of all sizes, from Fortune 100 companies to start-up companies working across a broad range of technologies in the mechanical, electrical, biomedical and software arts. Our client counseling takes into account the costs, benefits, availability and suitability of patent protection for the inventive activities of the company.
In addition to procuring patents, we also assist with licensing and freedom-to-operate reviews. Additionally, we have both company-side and investor-side due diligence experience, can assist clients in acquiring patents from others and in determining the scope, validity and value of such patents or trade secrets.
