Our patent procurement philosophy is based not simply upon obtaining a patent. Rather, using our uncommonly broad level of technological sophistication, together with our expertise before the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office and patent offices throughout the world, we craft a patent strategy for our clients, permitting them to build patent portfolios that have business value. We emphasize comprehensive coordination of worldwide patent filings in order to ensure that our clients obtain the most effective patent protection.
Perhaps most importantly, utilizing our keen understanding of business issues and litigation, we are able to counsel our clients on the practical and business aspects of patent prosecution, seeking ways to maximize protection with a view towards building assets, protecting markets and developing income streams for the benefit of our clients. These same skills enable us to provide patent procurement strategies that minimize the threat of third party challenges and maximize patent enforcement power. Our extensive experience with the various pilot and other programs available at the United States Patent and Trademark Office and patent offices throughout the world and our emphasis on conducting telephone and in-person interviews to engage the examiners at the United States Patent and Trademark Office in a cordial discussion of complex technical matters, are just some of the tools we utilize in order to successfully and rapidly resolve pending prosecution.
