Patent

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.

Our Patent Services Include:

  • Planning and developing patent portfolios that provide strategically valuable protection

  • Providing patent mining consulting, including analyzing complex technologies and systems and identifying patentable inventions

  • Drafting and prosecuting U.S. patent applications

  • Providing post-grant support, including IPRs, reexamination and other administrative proceedings before the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office

  • Providing client counseling and opinions, including infringement, validity,  inventorship and freedom-to-operate opinions

  • Negotiating patent licenses and technology partnership agreements

  • Securing international rights via the Patent Cooperative Treaty process and an extensive network of foreign associates in Asia, Europe, the Americas and elsewhere around the globe.
