Patent Procurement

At Tsircou Intellectual Property Law, we lead clients through the process of securing patent rights in the United States and throughout the world.

We work with clients who have a broad array of goals for their patents. Patents are a powerful business tool. With a strong patent one can fend off competitors from critical technologies or products, build business value and monetize investments in research and through a royalty program. With a vast understanding of our clients’ ever changing needs, we construct a patenting strategy to align with their business objectives.

Within the firm, we build and execute a process for identifying innovations, securing patent rights for those innovations and developing a patent portfolio that best protects our clients.

Representative services relating to patents procurement include:

  • U.S. and foreign patent application preparation and prosecution
  • Representation before the Board of Patent Appeals and Interferences, of the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office
  • Patent portfolio development and maintenance
