Our global perspective encourages successful outcomes.
Today's global marketplace demands a global perspective. Our clients are based both in the United States and abroad, and we take care to factor in the role and effectiveness of the isolated patent regimes.
Over several decades, we have established an expansive network of law firms and solicitors, enabling us to effectively address patent issues anywhere in the world. We devise strategies and solutions for clients from start-ups to multinational conglomerates,helping them to achieve their commercial goals in an efficient manner.
Complexity made comprehensible.
Global patent law is complicated to many. Likewise, the U.S. patent system is unlike anywhere else in the world and demands special expertise.
Patents can be corrected by reexamination or reissue, and priority contests are decided in interference proceedings, a legacy of our unique first-to-invent system. Our firm boasts one of the most active and longstanding post-allowance practices in the country, with nationally recognized experts and staff dedicated solely to those practices. Our experience in post-allowance practice affords an insightful perspective that enables us to devise creative strategies and offer cost-effective alternatives or adjuncts to litigation.
