Utility Patents

Utility patents made simple.

We make it easy and affordable to protect the functional aspect of your invention with a utility patent.

Utility Patents

We have represented clients regarding post-issuance matters in district courts and before the USPTO and PTAB. We regularly advise our clients regarding patent infringement, design rights, freedom to operate, and validity. Our firm’s strong litigation experience helps us to obtain patents for our clients that are both enforceable and durable.

Experience that spans the life of your utility patent

Our firm’s broad range of experience in all areas of IP law, including utility patents, design patents, non-provisional patents, trademark, copyright, and litigation, allows us to implement complementary strategies capable of protecting your products on all fronts.
