Patent Prosecution, Counseling & Review

Our global patent prosecution, counseling, and review practice covers the full range of patent services—from systematically harvesting new inventions to prosecution, design-around solutions, and portfolio management.

From the point of an inventor’s flash of genius all the way through to the grant of U.S. and/or foreign patents, our attorneys provide clients with a full range of patent services, including patentability searching and evaluation; patent application preparation and prosecution, both in the United States and worldwide; appeals; oppositions; patent maintenance; counseling regarding infringement avoidance; and validity and infringement studies and opinions.

With the still-recent passage of the America Invents Act (AIA), we provide our clients with expertise in the targeted use of inter partes reviews and other post-grant review options that can quickly resolve infringement issues before they mature into full-blown litigation. 

As with other compliance regimes, knowledge and awareness are critical. In order to give our clients a starting point, D&A have created a series of webinars called GDPR Today, that provides you with a basic understanding of the potential dangers and opportunities created by the GDPR.
