Cortex Law Group Logo


Patents for optical systems, devices, circuits, and processes are pursued by businesses for numerous reasons. Development and management of a quality patent portfolio including optical patents 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 optical patents to our client's businesses, we work closely with our clients to protect their intellectual property worldwide. Optical 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 optical arts to perform patent portfolio management, monetization, and opinion services.
