Patent Prosecution & Counseling

Strong patent rights are powerful business tools for emerging and established businesses—providing access to capital, attracting merger partners and protecting investments and market share.

BUSINESS STRATEGY

Our patent attorneys work closely with clients to understand and pursue their business objectives. We have earned a reputation for sophisticated and client-focused patent portfolio strategy, acquisition, management and deployment. We strive to find innovative ways to establish, protect and maximize the value of our clients’ technology with solid patent portfolios.
VALUABLE PATENTS

Many of our patent attorneys both litigate and prosecute patents, and all have a science or engineering background, often with deep experience in the technologies our clients want to protect. Insight from litigation and technical or scientific experience informs our counsel during the invention and patenting processes, facilitating our ability to obtain appropriately broad, defensible patents. We do not work merely to “obtain many patents,” but to develop portfolios that are valuable offensive and defensive business assets.
INDUSTRY-EXPERIENCED ATTORNEYS

Our patent prosecution and counseling attorneys have degrees in a variety of scientific areas and most have industry experience working as engineers, inventors, researchers and educators. We have highly experienced teams to assist clients with mechanical engineering and medical device patents, software and electrical engineering patents, and biotechnology and chemical patents.

DISCLAIMER

While we are pleased to have you contact us by telephone, surface mail, electronic mail, or by facsimile transmission, contacting Kilpatrick Townsend & Stockton LLP or any of its attorneys does not create an attorney-client relationship. The formation of an attorney-client relationship requires consideration of multiple factors, including possible conflicts of interest. An attorney-client relationship is formed only when both you and the Firm have agreed to proceed with a defined engagement.

DO NOT CONVEY TO US ANY INFORMATION YOU REGARD AS CONFIDENTIAL UNTIL A FORMAL CLIENT-ATTORNEY RELATIONSHIP HAS BEEN ESTABLISHED.

If you do convey information, you recognize that we may review and disclose the information, and you agree that even if you regard the information as highly confidential and even if it is transmitted in a good faith effort to retain us, such a review does not preclude us from representing another client directly adverse to you, even in a matter where that information could be used against you.
