Patent Prosecution

Our patent law firm, located in Washington, DC, has considerable experience in preparing and prosecuting patent applications at the United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO or PTO), including utility patents, design patents , and provisional patent applications.  We take pride in preparing patent applications which will help our clients accomplish their business objectives.  Our broad litigation and licensing experience are invaluable in obtaining patents that can be effectively licensed or enforced against infringers.  We also advise on the strategic aspects of patent prosecution, helping our clients develop an appropriate and cost-effective patent portfolio.

To meet the needs of our client, we provide a full range of patent prosecution-related services:

  • Comprehensive patent prosecution services in the U.S
  • Coordination of patent prosecutions in other countries
  • International patent prosecution under the Patent Cooperation Treaty (PCT)
  • Patent appeals and interferences in the PTO
  • Opinions on validity, enforceability, and infringement
  • Patent portfolio management
  • Patent licensing and other technology or know-how transfer

The strength and commercial value of a patent often lies in the critical details concerning claim and specification drafting and effective prosecution arguments.  For legal advice on obtaining a patent, consult a registered patent attorney.  You may also refer to the attached intake form to assist you in effectively communicating your invention to patent counsel.
