The intellectual property assets of the financial services and banking industries have long been a key focus of our practice. Rapid development of new products and services, along with significant changes brought about in the area of business method patents, have reconfigured the landscape dramatically and made intellectual property protection a matter of continuous and utmost importance.
Our financial industry clients depended upon us for preparation and prosecution of patents to protect business methods and financial services inventions long before anyone knew the term "e-commerce." We led the way, having long been an experienced and knowledgeable resource in all IP areas applicable to finance; areas that have expanded in the last decade beyond innovative financial products to include electronic and Internet-based trading systems, Internet payment and fund transfer technologies, and proprietary financial modeling.
We provide sophisticated and active IP legal counseling for each step of development and implementation in order to protect, license and enforce business method patents and the range of IP assets that constitute an increasing portion of the financial industry's lifeblood.
We prosecute and enforce advanced business method patents, coordinate worldwide trademark and copyright protection, counsel clients and provide all necessary opinions regarding potential infringement of competing patents. We aggressively defend against infringement claims when they arise. Most importantly, we are especially attentive to new developments and the ways in which they will affect our clients, especially in this particularly fluid modern business environment.
