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.

We stay on top of constantly evolving intellectual property laws in countries throughout the world so that we can help our clients maximize their rights throughout the globe.
