At Bacon & Thomas, our patent experience can provide you with a solid base of superior technical capabilities, effective communication skills, and in-depth knowledge of the U.S. patent system. We are strategically located near the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office (PTO), allowing us to interact personally with patent examiners and to fully use the resources provided by the Patent Office. We provide cost-effective legal services by drawing on our deep experience and broad expertise in all the various fields of science and technology, taking advantage of our proximity to the PTO, and focusing on service. 

Our patent procurement services include drafting and prosecuting patent applications, conducting patentability studies, and developing strategies for maximizing the benefit of a patent portfolio. We routinely draw on our legal expertise, including appeals and interferences before the Board of Patent Appeals and Interferences, and reissuance and reexamination of existing patents. We not only procure patent protection but also employ our legal skills to assist you in protecting your patented technology.

Bacon & Thomas patent attorneys and agents have varied backgrounds that enhance our relations with both the innovators and patent examiners. Our patent attorneys hold not only legal degrees but also technical degrees and have distinguished academic credentials. Many of our patent professionals previously worked as engineers, developers, or scientists in their respective fields and understand what it is like to develop new ideas, products, and methods. Moreover, many of our patent professionals served as examiners at the PTO, providing us insight into the workings of the PTO. With this combination of technical, legal, and examination experience, we are better able to secure patent protection for you.

We assist a variety of clientele, serving corporate clients large and small, leading research universities, government institutions, and individual inventors. Our clientele extends beyond our domestic borders in that we work with a varied and diverse group of foreign clients seeking patent protection in the United States. We often capitalize on an established and extensive international network of foreign associates to procure patents for our clients around the globe. Our attorneys regularly provide practical lectures or seminars at our clients’ offices worldwide on a range of topics related to U.S. law and business.
