Does You Need a Patent Lawyer?

Unfortunately, many companies do not realize that they need a patent lawyer until its too late. Some may make costly errors or omissions when attempting to file a patent application on their own. Others may unknowingly sign away valuable rights when executing patent licensing agreements.

Intellectual property is a specialized and complicated area of law, and it is easy to make mistakes.  Usually, you need to rely on the experience of a patent attorney.

At my firm, we apply skilled legal talent to help clients fulflll  needs, solve problems, handle situations and realize opportunities in a number of areas of patent law.

For anyone seeking to protect their ideas, I can help you prepare and prosecute your patents, copyrights and trademarks,, both here in the U.S. and abroad.

Internationally I work with clients to protect their IP through filings under the Patent Cooperation Treaty (PCT), in the European Patent Office (EPO), Community Trademarks (CTM) and in individual filings foreign countries.

For companies that already hold patents, management and enforcement is paramount.  I can assist you in licensing your patents, drafting confidentiality agreements, calculating maintenance fees, and managing their portfolio.

I also advise companies about the boundaries of a competitor’s patent by performing infringement analysis, design around analysis, and validity studies.

If you are involved in patent infringement litigation, we can provide patent enforcement and defense, as well as opinion and expert testimony.

I can help control costs through a number of flexible options, including fixed fee arrangements, to  deliver quality of service within your budget.
