Patent protection is fundamental to any organization that relies on innovation, research, and development.  Cesari and McKenna works with research institutions, large multi-national corporations and early-stage startups to determine whether, when and where to seek patent protection.  We don’t just file patent applications.  We take the time needed to understand our clients’ goals and then create enforceable tools they can use to achieve them. We then support these patent throughout their life cycles.
