A patent is an exclusive right granted to an inventor that gives the patent holder sole rights to manufacture‚ use‚ and sell that invention for a limited period of time. The two most common types of patents that are granted are utility patents (issuance of up to twenty years)‚ and design patents (issuance for a period of up to fourteen years).
We assist clients in filing and prosecuting patent applications. For more information‚ please visit our patent registration page.
Patent infringement occurs when a claim of an existing patent is used without the patent holder’s permission. In an increasingly competitive world market‚ the incidence of patent infringement is growing. If you are a party in a patent infringement dispute‚ we encourage you to contact an attorney as soon as possible. Please see our patent infringement page for further information.
If patent infringement is not corrected‚ it may be necessary to litigate the matter. If you are involved in a patent infringement dispute‚ we strongly recommend that you seek the advice of a litigation attorney at the earliest opportunity. Our patent attorneys are experienced at handling the most complex patent litigation cases and will choose the strategy to provide you with optimal results in your patent case. For more information‚ please see our patent litigation page or feel free to contact us anytime.
