Taking an idea and turning it into a legally protected business asset requires attention to detail, a focus on quality, and a strategic vision for the way that idea-turned asset will impact a client’s business and industry. The Cole Schotz patent team delivers these values to a diverse set of clients in a variety of industries – from international companies with large, international portfolios to the small business owner with a single business-altering idea. We strive to create economical strategies for our clients that link their patent properties to their business strategies, with the ultimate goal of creating a strong, valuable, and sustainable portfolio.

We work with our clients and their inventors from the earliest stage of development, helping them with internal processes to identify, encourage, establish, and protect that innovation. We render opinions on patentability, enforceability, non-infringement, and freedom-to-operate issues. We work with our clients to draft, file, and prosecute utility and design patent applications. Our team assists clients on both the investor-side and the company-side with intellectual property due diligence, patent portfolio analysis, and commercial transactions. We assist our clients in managing existing portfolios by seeking to maximize patent strength and value and promote our clients’ short- and long-term goals. Our patent prosecution and litigation teams work closely together to pursue inter partes reexamination at the Patent Trial and Appeal Board, as well as interference and reissue proceedings.
