Areas Of Expertise

Patent Procurement

Overly broad patents are difficult to enforce and easy to defeat. We ensure every patent specification provides rich and detailed descriptions of all potential alternative implementations to craft patent coverage that blocks competitors from a given space.

Post-Grant Proceedings

Our team has handled some of the highest stakes post-grant matters ever adjudicated by the United States Patent and Trademark Office, often running into the billions of dollars. We regularly serve as lead counsel for both challengers and patent owners.

Patent and Trade Secret Litigation

Our enforcement campaigns have included infringement suits in the United States, Europe and Asia involving both patent infringement and trade secret misappropriation. Most cases involved co-pending oppositions and inter parties review proceedings before foreign and domestic patent offices.

We’re unique among small patent firms in our team’s extraordinary breadth of intellectual property experience and expertise.
