A central objective of the firm is to assist clients in aggressively acquiring intellectual property rights, most commonly patent rights. The firm can effectively represent clients' interests regardless of whether the client is an individual inventor, a start-up, emerging company, market leader, or academic institution.

By working closely with an individual client, over time, the firm can provide more effective legal representation and offers substantial economic efficiencies. An example of the firm's capabilities is our representation of Calgene and our assistance to them in establishing a significant patent portfolio in the agricultural biotechnology field. In addition, practitioners in the firm have represented Gist-brocades in preparing and prosecuting patent applications, in interference proceedings, and in advising the company on matters relating to validity and infringement of their own and third party patents.

The firm provides fully integrated intellectual property services, including technology transfer and licensing arrangements, intellectual property audits, strategic intellectual property portfolio planning, patent preparation and prosecution, patent interferences, trademark prosecution, infringement and validity analyses, litigation avoidance, and risk management techniques.
