IP Law Leaders is a leader in protecting intellectual property for startups and individual inventors. The combined experience of our registered patent and trademark attorneys numbers hundreds of years and thousands of cases. We offer a broad range of technical expertise, from simple electro-mechanical to the most sophisticated software and chemical applications. Our firm philosophy is quite simple. Protect our client's intellectual property efficiently, effectively, and exceptionally.
Why choose our firm?
In addition to our value based pricing and our breadth of IP technology experience, we offer both IP prosecution services and litigation support. This distinction is critical. While many firms offer IP prosecution or litigation services, only a few offer both, and these are usually the large, very expensive firms. And why is having both prosecution and litigation services available from the same firm important to the client? Take patent services as an example. It is one thing for a firm to handle the drafting and filing of a patent application and the subsequent work with the USPTO to get the patent issued. It's another thing to enforce that patent in the judicial system, i.e. file suit for patent infringement.
Recent statistics indicate over 46% of issued patents are invalidated when contested in the court system. What that means is that the value of your patent does not depend solely on having it issued by the USPTO, but also being able to enforce ownership rights in court. Trying to protect your IP with a weak patent may actually devalue your property.
In the case of our firm, the attorneys prosecuting your patents and trademarks are skilled in both prosecution and litigation. This means when our attorneys are drafting the claims for your patent application they are considering the ramifications for both the patent examiner's review and the enforcement of that claim in court. This distinction, our firm's ability to provide both prosecution and litigation IP services, adds an immeasurable value for our clients.
