Patent Prosecution

Overview

Volpe Koenig is highly regarded by clients for the scope and depth of our patent procurement services during all stages of the process. Citing responsiveness as the firm’s top strength, clients view our patent professionals as key partners for both strategy and execution in developing their patent portfolios.

Valid, infringed, enforceable claims are always our focus. We identify the business objectives for a specific patent filing early and revisit those objectives throughout prosecution. Particularly in technology areas with evolving case law, we consult with our clients to ensure that we draft robust disclosures with structural/architectural alternatives that, wherever possible, anticipate and mitigate changes in the law and technology.

Many of our patent professionals hold advanced degrees and bring real world industry experience in electrical, mechanical, chemical and civil engineering, as well as computer technology and the life sciences. We have former patent examiners in the patent procurement group, including those with a deep understanding of USPTO 35 USC 101 rejections.

Our network of foreign associates extends across the globe, and with our associates we routinely help clients secure patent protection in every commercially relevant country.  We regularly counsel clients on tactics to secure protection for inventions either directly in individual countries, or through an international (PCT) application, which is prepared to maximize downstream protection in countries around the world. In addition, our practitioners have extensive experience mining patent portfolios, conducting periodic portfolio reviews, establishing and implementing prosecution protocols based on a customized ranking system, and preparing claim charts.
