Patent Applications and Registrations
We help make your experience with the patent system simpler and stress-free, with the goal of achieving a high quality patent, one that protects the essential elements of your new invention.
We offer significant expertise and experience obtaining patents for Fortune 500 companies, established small- and medium-sized enterprises, and startups. In all cases, we work hard to establish a competitive advantage and help protect your technology investments through patent law.
Working on behalf of our clients, we have obtained patents in practically all fields of technology including software and mobile devices, consumer goods, automotive, cleantech, mining and beverage alcohol, to name a few. We obtain patents in Canada, the U.S., and elsewhere, either directly or through our extensive international network of associates.
Our experience litigating patents, and performing transactional due diligence involving the transfer of patents, gives us special insight to help make your application stronger and better able to withstand scrutiny by decision makers such as investors, competitors, industry partners, not to mention patent examiners and courts.
We continuously monitor developments in Canada, the U.S., Europe and other significant markets to help you obtain useful and up-to-date protection in the markets that are important to you.
