Patent Searches and Opinions
CSG Law patent attorneys conduct thorough patentability searches to determine patentability and the scope of protection available for our client’s inventions. We also conduct validity and right-to-use searches in order to counsel our clients with respect to third party patent rights. Based upon these searches, our experienced attorneys help clients develop strategies to avoid infringing upon the patent rights of others while protecting the rights to their own inventions.
Patent Preparation and Prosecution
Our extensive experience preparing and prosecuting patent applications in many fields, including mechanical, electrical, computer, business methods, data networking, e-commerce, fintech and optical, has resulted in our clients’ ability to build solid and successful patent portfolios. Our extensive network with foreign patent attorneys allows our clients to protect their inventions not just in the US, but throughout the world.
With our counsel, many start-up businesses obtained patent protection on inventions that launched successful business ventures. Keeping our clients’ budgets and priorities in mind, we pursue efficient prosecution strategies, including examiner interviews and continuation applications, to obtain valuable patents for our clients. We also handle appeals of final United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) decisions as well as other proceedings before the Patent Trial and Appeal Board.
Third-Party Defensive Work
In today’s era of “patent assertion entities”, all companies, both large and small, are at risk of becoming a target of a patent assertion. CSG Law evaluates third-party claims against our clients’ products and services and defends them against these assertions.
