Today, Brooks Kushman is regularly recognized for our high level of excellence by leading industry organizations and is ranked among the top patent firms in the United States in terms of patent filings.
Our patent practitioners remain at the forefront of best practices and produce high-quality patents through our Analytics-Backed Prosecution program. As a result of our dedication to regularly investing in technology solutions to streamline our practice, clients receive services focused on quality, cost-effectiveness, responsiveness, and collaboration.
We recognize that U.S. patents are essential business assets. They must be able to withstand validity challenges in post-grant proceedings, as well as validity challenges and non-infringement defenses in litigation. Many of our patent attorneys’ practices include post-grant and litigation experience which allows us to obtain patents that are enforceable while maximizing our clients’ rights.
A Global Solution
When global intellectual property rights are at issue, Brooks Kushman is ready with a solution for clients based in both the U.S. and abroad. We have extensive experience managing patent portfolios for entities around the globe. In fact, almost half of the patents we file each year arise from foreign priority claims.
5-Year Average of Filings
Our foreign filing department follows the constantly changing laws in each country to help clients maximize their rights around the world.
We work closely with our clients’ engineers and business managers to determine which of their technologies require protection to provide a well-coordinated and comprehensive global prosecution strategy that maximizes patent protection and minimizes costs associated with foreign filing and prosecution. Our priority is to help our clients develop a valuable global patent portfolio in an effective and cost-efficient manner, while reducing the risk of complications in any U.S. litigation.
