The patent procurement process requires counsel to work closely with the inventor to assess the invention, prepare the necessary specifications and drawings for filing with the Patent Office, and ultimately and most importantly, to properly define or “claim” the invention in words. This process requires patent counsel to have excellent technical, communication and writing skills, along with detailed knowledge of the many procedures and rules required by the United States Patent and Trademark Office.
In view of our firm’s extensive enforcement experience, the registered patent attorneys at our firm approach patent prosecution from the perspective of counsel who has seen defenses from opposing counsel and evaluated the strengths and weaknesses of patents hundreds of times. We consider those potential defenses early in the procurement process in order to draft strong patents and claims and maximize value for our clients.
