Technical Expertise

Mechanical and Electromechanical

Mechanical and electromechanical patents typically cover innovations surrounding a client's systems, products, processes for making products, and/or processes for using products. Development and management of a quality patent portfolio is important to create barriers to entry for competitors, to deter costly patent litigation, to reduce royalty payments to competitors, to attract investors and obtain funding, and to provide a revenue stream for the business through monetization.

Recognizing the importance of mechanical and electromechanical patents to our client's businesses, we work closely with our clients to protect their intellectual property worldwide. Mechanical and electromechanical patent applications are drafted and prosecuted with an eye toward litigation, taking into account the legal differences among countries where appropriate. We also utilize our extensive technical expertise in the mechanical and electromechanical arts to perform patent portfolio management, monetization, and opinion services.
