Counseling

We work with our clients to evaluate how their intellectual property assets fit into their business strategy so that investments made in IP protection yield the highest possible return. Our counseling services enable clients to steer clear of pitfalls, avoid potential litigation, capture the full value of intangible assets, and maximize the return on investments in intellectual assets.

Licensing

Our legal and technical experience and our background in the business of exploiting technology and IP assets bring our clients a strategic advantage. We help our clients leverage their patents, trade secrets, know-how, etc. to generate revenue streams, open new markets, or shut down competitors.

Opinions of Counsel

We render opinions ranging from a single opinion on a specific patent to providing long-term, ongoing counseling on complex patent portfolios or litigation. We routinely address patent validity, enforceability, misuse, design-around issues, licensing potential, IP contract construction and enforcement, and export controls. We regularly partner with our clients’ legal, business, and technical staff to identify the potential for risk and reward, from idea to revenue-generating portfolios.
