Patents are essential to businesses and individual innovators. If you invent a technology, a patent can be used to protect it by filing an application with the United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO). A patent is essentially an exclusive license to use a technology for a certain period of time. Someone with a U.S. Patent has the sole right to sell, use, or license the protected technology. That means you can stop others from making, using, or selling your patented technology. Our patent law attorneys can help you or your business in intellectual property patent law as follows:
– Patent acquisition (e.g., drafting and prosecuting applications)
– Patent monitoring
– Patent enforcement
– Patent defense
– Resolution of disputes with someone who owns a patent, including alternative dispute resolution.
