Prosecution of Applications for Patents, Trademarks and Copyrights

As an idea, image, logo, manuscript or other creative work begins to take shape or is acquired, it is important to consider the best methods of protecting and exploiting that valuable asset. As part of our prosecution practice, our professionals work closely with our clients to help identify opportunities, as well as potential impediments, to achieve the strongest and broadest protections available upon eventual registration of the intellectual property assets. When impediments are spotted, our professionals help identify potential solutions and the best approach for pursuing protection of the intellectual property assets. When a particular idea becomes sufficiently defined and concrete, our clients are able to take advantage of our extensive knowledge of the registration process at the United States Patent and Trademark Office, the United States Copyright Office and in foreign countries. While our patent prosecution practice includes our special expertise in the areas of electrical circuits and systems (especially in the areas of integrated circuits and computer and microprocessor architecture), biomedical innovations (including a variety of medical devices and diagnostic systems), biotechnology instrumentation and software, electromagnetic systems, and networking and communication systems, our firm also has patent prosecution experience in a vast array of additional Technologies and Industries. Our trademark prosecution practice is equally diverse and has been built to assist our entire client base in protecting the valuable goodwill associated with their trademarks, with a special emphasis on providing timely, efficient and affordable legal services to all sizes of client. Our copyright prosecution practice is likewise robust and covers a wide collection of materials, from the common, such as books, photographs and computer software, to the more unique, such as flag and windsock designs, jewelry designs, architectural plans, works of visual and fine art and cartoon characters.
