Patent prosecution

We are capable of handling the most complex patent prosecution matters with skill and a deep understanding of the patent legal process. Our full-service prosecution practice focuses on patent application preparation, strategic claiming methodologies, portfolio counseling, patent application prosecution, patent application issuance and subsequent patent maintenance for clients around the world.

We are experts in handling complex patent office proceedings, including reexamination and reissue proceedings, appeals to the Board of Patent Appeals and Interferences and negotiating and preparing patent license agreements, confidentiality agreements, know-how licenses and IP and technology transfer agreements. We also help build a client’s patent portfolio worldwide by filing and prosecuting applications in the PCT, EPO and all foreign countries. Our attorneys/Agents work closely with our clients and the PTO throughout the prosecution to facilitate the issuance of claims of proper scope as quickly as possible. We routinely conduct personal interviews with patent examiners and meet with Patent Office clerical staff to keep a patent application moving smoothly from filing to issuance.
