Securing basic rights of ownership through the procurement of patents, registered trademarks, and copyrights is the foundation of an effective intellectual property strategy. Our clients know that their procurement strategy is in good hands. We always make sure our clients and their intellectual property assets are well-protected.

We craft prosecution strategies focused on our clients' business goals. We are skilled in all aspects of prosecution, including patent interference, re-examination, reissue, and opposition proceedings, as well as trademark opposition and cancellation proceedings, both in the United States and internationally. Our patent attorneys and patent agents are adept in all aspects of patent procurement, including drafting applications and prosecuting them before the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office and abroad.

Our attorneys provide patent prosecution and counseling services in a wide range of technical areas, including biotechnology, business methods, chemical, computing, electrical, mechanical and materials, pharmaceuticals and diagnostics, and telecommunications. Our broad patent litigation experience in enforcement and defense gives us an advantage in prosecution situations. We understand all sides of the issues that our clients face, so we are always ready to aggressively pursue and defend their rights.

Summer 2016 (snippets)
As 3D printing changes the way that companies (and consumers) manufacture articles, it will also have a significant impact on how enterprises can protect their intellectual property and enforce their rights.
Summer 2016 (snippets)
Despite potential costs, startups can benefit from obtaining IP rights. Not only can IP protection potentially block others from negatively impacting the startup, it can also be seen as valuable property rights by investors. A startup can even potentially monetize IP rights through licenses or sales.
Summer 2016 (snippets)
By analyzing USPTO data about the number of requests, the pendency of proceedings, and the frequency of finding a substantial new question of patentability (“SNQP”), this article seeks to identify trends that will help patent owners thoughtfully weigh the risks and rewards of supplemental examination.
Summer 2016 (snippets)
The near-simultaneous codification of trade secret-related standards on both sides of the Atlantic reflects the increased importance of trade secrets in global economies. A driving force behind the reform in both the US and the EU was a desire to harmonize laws protecting trade secrets.
June 27, 2016 (snippets Alert)
By now, everyone has likely heard about the United Kingdom’s vote last week to leave the European Union. Few things are certain at this time, as governments around the world are still making plans to deal with Brexit. Once the UK formally requests withdrawal (which may still be months away), its transition out of the EU will be a lengthy process. As of now, no laws have changed as a result of the UK vote last week. We therefore do not recommend taking any drastic action at this time. We do, however, recommend that any businesses with a presence in the EU begin planning for the changes that will ultimately affect trademark and design rights in Europe.

MBHB snippets Alert - June 20, 2016

In its first pronouncement regarding the post-grant reviewing proceedings established by the America Invents Act (“AIA”), the Supreme Court ruled that the Patent and Trademark Office’s positions on two of the law’s provisions regarding inter partes review (“IPR”) were correct. First, the Court held unanimously that the PTO properly applied the “broadest reasonable interpretation” standard for claim construction for IPRs. Second, six members of the Court also agreed that the statute mandated that the decision to institute an IPR was not subject to judicial review.
