We have worked extensively with issues related to industrial chemicals, consumer-product compositions, processes and methods of manufacture and catalysis, waste management technology, process chemistry, surfactants and detergents, and organic synthesis of both small molecules and polymers. We are experienced in preparing and prosecuting chemical patent applications in both the organic and inorganic areas, for compositions such as:

  • synthetic fibers
  • polymers
  • insulating materials
  • adhesives
  • resins
  • carbon coatings
  • silicon coatings
  • glass
  • ceramics
  • agricultural chemicals

 

We have also worked with the manufacturing processes and equipment related to chemical engineering.

We are not just chemical patent attorneys, we also have extensive experience preparing patent portfolios as well as trademark portfolios, PTO interferences and licensing agreements. With a number of our attorneys holding advanced degrees in chemistry and chemical engineering, our firm has true depth in this area. Our expertise in physical and applied chemistry, surface chemistry, agricultural chemistry, nanotechnology, and environmental science spans numerous industries, from industrial manufacturing to cosmetics. We have high level chemical engineers who can analyze all the issues regarding the composition of the intellectual property as well as the legal issues.

MBHB snippets Alert - May 11, 2016

This afternoon, President Obama signed the Defend Trade Secrets Act of 2016 (“DTSA”) into law, creating a new Federal cause of action for misappropriation of trade secrets. The new law is the most significant expansion of Federal intellectual property law in a generation, and brings with it significant benefits – but also new responsibilities – for intellectual property owners and employers. And in this era of narrowed subject matter eligibility for patenting, the DTSA may provide enough of an incentive for intellectual property owners to keep more information as trade secrets.

The Defend Trade Secrets Act of 2015, a bill to establish a federal cause of action for trade secret misappropriation, has continued its progress through Congress with a favorable hearing before the Senate Judiciary Committee on December 2, 2015, that led to unanimous committee approval of an amended version on January 28, 2016. Despite the legislative logjam created by the impending election, and the failure to pass a similar bill during the last term of Congress, there is a significant probability that the bill will pass into law.

February 4, 2016, marked the one-year anniversary of the initial In re Cuozzo Speed Technologies, LLC Federal Circuit decision – the first opinion stemming from the first appeal of the first final written decision of the first inter partes review (“IPR”) ever filed. From the time that decision came out until the end of January 2016, there have been at least 56 appeals from IPRs and Covered Business Method (“CBM”) patent reviews resolved by this appeals court.

It has been over 20 months since the Supreme Court handed down the landmark decision in Alice Corp. v. CLS Bank Int’l, effectively limiting the scope of patent-eligible subject matter. In particular, software and business method patents and applications now receive a higher level of scrutiny under Alice than had previously been the case.

The USPTO offers a spectrum of programs that can be used to expedite examination of patent applications, which include Prioritized Examination (PE), Accelerated Examination (AE), the Patent Prosecution Highway (PPH), Petitions to Make Special (PTMS), Full First Action Interviews (FFAI), the After Final Consideration Pilot (AFCP 2.0) program, and the Collaborative Search Pilot (CSP) program.
Fall 2015 (snippets)
This is the perfect time and environment in which to take a close look at your trademark portfolio. It is the time to be thankful for your brand’s position in the market and the investments you have made into searching, registering, maintaining, and enforcing your trademarks. But it is also the time to set goals and develop plans to make better use of your trademark portfolios.
