Patent Prosecution

Preparation and prosecution of patent applications, both in the United States and abroad, was the historical basis for the firm’s practice at its founding in the 1920’s, and has been significant in our client services ever since. Today we prosecute patent applications in the U.S. and around the world. Docketing and maintenance of the firm’s extensive active U.S. and foreign patent files are handled by a full-time staff working under the supervision of the firm’s attorneys, using state-of-the-art systems.

Many of the firm’s patent prosecution activities center on the specialized technologies that our attorneys are uniquely trained and experienced to handle, such as biotechnology and electronics — including dozens of internet-related patents. In addition, we provide prosecution services in a broad range of technologies to many small and mid-sized companies that do not have in-house patent staff sufficient to handle the workload. We also provide prosecution assistance to large clients that have specialized technical needs, critical timing requirements, or patent applications likely to be embroiled in litigation or interferences.

Our emphasis on prosecution skills is an historic attribute of our philosophy that the best patent litigators are those who have skills in patent prosecution, and that the finest prosecution skills are honed by experience in dealing with litigation matters. Thus the firm requires proficiency and experience in patent prosecution in all of its litigation attorneys; all members of the firm are registered to practice in patent matters before the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office, and all have experience in prosecution.
