Prosecution of Applications for Patent and Trademark, and Registration of Copyright
We handle all phases of the prosecution of applications for utility and design patents and trademarks before the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office, as well as the registration of copyrights with the U.S. Copyright Office. Our intellectual property lawyers assist clients through each stage of the application process, and are particularly adept at filing detailed applications that fully satisfy all of the complex requirements.
Clients regularly seek our guidance related to the:
- Patentability of an invention
- Federal registration of a trademark
- Feasibility of copyright protection for an original creation
In instances where an application is declined, our intellectual property lawyers will vigorously represent companies and individuals in all adversary proceedings, including opposition and interference proceedings before the U.S. Trademark Trial and Appeal Board and the U.S. Patent Trial and Appeal Board. We also monitor and maintain clients’ intellectual property rights, and will work with clients to renew registrations and, in the case of trademarks, to file the necessary documentation to meet and renew maintenance requirements.
