Patent Prosecution

Our lawyers are end game driven. Our big picture view of patent prosecution is grounded in extraordinary patent expertise, and enhanced by our commitment to understanding each client’s target audience and commercial objectives. We work diligently to design and execute patent portfolio programs that meet and often exceed immediate client goals and budgetary requirements, while taking into consideration the longer term business objectives for patent monetization.

We are the law firm you can depend on for superior quality patent prosecution. Our patent prosecution counsel is extensive, and includes:

  • Analyzing invention disclosures from inception
  • Preparing and filing patent applications
  • Developing an immediate and durable global patent strategy
  • Coordinating worldwide patent prosecution
  • Conducting administrative appeals, petitions and protests
  • Advocating our client’s position in post grant reviews, reexaminations and reissues
  • Delivering continuous and worldwide portfolio management and infringement protection

Simply, we write our patents so that they can be licensed and enforced. High quality patent preparation and prosecution, portfolio management and opinion of counsel abilities typically allow our clients to stay out of court. However, when court intervention is necessary, our clients can have confidence in the patents we obtain on their behalf. Our total quality approach to patent prosecution means that we do the patent right, the first time around. As a result, we are not daunted at the prospect of enforcing our work.

Harness Dickey offers both quality patent attorneys and the critical mass needed to leverage institutional synergies resulting in unparalleled practical know how. We do not reinvent the wheel when a client comes to us with a complicated or sophisticated invention, as it is very likely that one of our attorneys has already encountered a similar procedural situation. Our unprecedented breadth of experience and deep bench of expertise in patent preparation and prosecution has benefitted entrepreneurs and start-up companies, industry leaders and thought innovators, early stage ventures and research institutions, and large conglomerates for almost a century.

We are collaborators and our clients choose to stay with our Firm… for decades. This is because we consistently deliver pragmatic advice, good return on investment and distinctively excellent work.
