Protecting the rights of consumer and industrial applications of mechanical and medical devices always has been at the heart of our practice. Our experience in disciplines such as biochemistry and physics, computer science, electrical and mechanical engineering and other applied sciences allows us to offer sophisticated, effective advice in both the technical and business spheres.
The mechanical technologies with which we have long worked are extensive and typically varied automotive products and aircraft engines, humidifiers and HVAC systems, photocopiers and printing presses, synthetic diamonds and sewing machines and many more.
Our work in this area continues unabated even as it has been joined by an equally long and varied list of medical device technologies angioplasty catheters, cardiovascular stents, hip implants, medical diagnostic equipment, orthopedic devices, prosthetics and surgical equipment, just to name a few.
The expansion of biomedical technology in particular has created potential conflicts and opportunities in IP assets. Whether in the mechanical or medical arena, a strategic patent approach requires both controlling and collaborating with the competition.
Correspondingly, our work is calculated to provide clients with effective strategic positions both defensively and offensively. We have prosecuted many thousands of patents, and we help build our clients' IP portfolios with an eye toward defense as well as profitable licensing opportunities, potential asset sales, acquisitions and mergers. Our opinion work is top-notch and dependable and our experience is longstanding and global. In the conduct of licensing negotiations, potential licensors/licensees are keenly aware of our reputation for successfully enforcing our clients' patent rights, invalidating an adversary's, and otherwise enforcing all forms of licensing agreements and contracts.
