Most companies are built on the strength of their innovation. In an environment of evolving technologies and varied patent regimes, protecting your inventions — and staying ahead of the competition — can be complex.
With over 400 IP lawyers in 40 countries, we offer the full range of electrical, mechanical, software, pharmaceutical and biological expertise when it comes to patent prosecution.
We prosecute, manage and advise on patent portfolios and strategy, including utility patents, design patents, and utility models.
We advise and lead patent assignments and licensing, research and development agreements and third-party collaboration arrangements, acquisitions and disposals, due diligence and audits. We also have experience in “acqui-hiring” scenarios.
We advise on complex patent questions across the full range of technical specializations, including issuing opinions on patentability, validity, freedom to operate, and infringement risks.
We analyze relevant competitive patent landscape and advise on consequential patent strategy.
We have a track record of global patent prosecution, helping our clients identify key jurisdictions and key products and features, to ensure robust yet cost-effective global patent protection.
