We’re experts in intellectual property because that is our sole focus. In addition to patent prosecution and litigation, as well as portfolio strategy, MBHB professionals also support clients with copyright, licensing, patent, trade secrets, trademark, unfair competition and advertising law.
Most of our professionals worked outside of the legal industry before joining the firm. Many of us are not just attorneys and patent agents, but also scientists and engineers. By combining deep technical knowledge with IP law expertise we are able to devise custom strategies that protect our clients’ innovations and support their business success.
While we’re a law firm, we are also biotechnologists, chemical engineers, software developers, and materials scientists – to name a few. This blend of legal and scientific expertise creates a uniquely interesting, collaborative, and intellectually rich environment. There’s a constant exchange of ideas at MBHB that creates a vibrant and collegial atmosphere. You’ll learn from and educate your colleagues on tight-knit, client focused teams.
Whether prosecuting a patent for a blockbuster drug or defending a software patent from infringement, we leverage the diverse ideas and talents of our professionals to uncover the best ways to serve our clients.
The opportunity for growth is immense,
whether a practitioner decides to pursue a
law degree or remain a patent agent. Both
patent agents and attorneys prosecute
patents for dynamic companies across a
range of industries.
MBHB is proud to support our practitioners
as they study for the patent bar exam or
pursue law degrees. Offerings include tuition reimbursement, reduced billable hour requirements, and dedicated mentorship from senior attorneys.
We believe diverse backgrounds, viewpoints,
and experience fuel innovation. No matter
your position, we want to hear your opinions,
and we value your contributions.
MBHB is committed to fostering education
and dialog to ensure diversity and inclusion.
Our efforts to improve the diversity of
the firm and the legal industry as a whole
include a Diversity and Inclusion Fellowship
and a D&I billable hour credit policy.
The firm is also participating in the Diversity
Lab Midsize Mansfield Rule Cohort and
working towards Mansfield Rule Certification.
