Our clients include domestic and foreign companies, universities, and individuals whom we represent before U.S. patent, trademark, and copyright offices; U.S. district and appellate courts; and foreign patent and trademark administrative agencies. Our experienced attorneys are registered to practice by the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office and provide counsel and representation in the evaluation, protection, enforcement, and licensing of intellectual property spanning a wide spectrum of technologies in the mechanical, electrical, biotechnical, and chemical sciences and extending to modern business and information processing models.

Apart from preparation and prosecution of domestic and foreign patent and trademark applications, the firm’s services include offensive and defensive litigation, patent interferences, licensing, and transaction matters involving intellectual property legal issues. We are also experienced in evaluating patentability of ideas, conducting due diligence investigations, preparing opinions on patent and trademark infringement issues, and counseling clientele on domestic and foreign patent and trademark protection strategy.
For prospective clients, we welcome the opportunity to demonstrate how we can effectively represent your interests in the field of intellectual property law by bringing global vision to your IP world.
