Experienced as patent prosecutors and patent litigators, the Firm focuses on helping clients obtain the broadest patent coverage in the most efficient manner possible. The Firm prepares and prosecutes national and international patents, conducts reexamination, interference proceedings and Markman hearings, and drafts claim construction charts. We can assist clients in obtaining or resisting temporary restraining orders, preliminary/temporary injunctions, and other equitable relief.
The Firm routinely counsels clients during the trademark selection process and provide detailed trademark opinions to avoid or minimize possibilities of litigation. Oftentimes litigation is inevitable and the Firm is prepared to litigate trademark cases in court, before the Trademark Trial and Appeal Board of the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office or the International Trade Commission.
The Firm assists clients in registering copyrights and drafting and negotiating agreements involving copyrighted works including joint-development agreements, licenses, assignments, rights clearance, and distribution agreements. In the event of litigation, the Firm has extensive experience in litigating against infringers as well as defending against allegations of infringement.
