Patent Preparation and Prosecution
Patents are perhaps the most tangible and enforceable types of intellectual property. Inventa Capital’ patent lawyers have extensive training and experience drafting and developing patents. We prosecute patents for companies of all sizes as well as individual inventors, academicians and universities. Inventa Capital will be with you every step of the way in the development and commercialization of technological innovations like nanotechnology and lithium ion batteries. We handle all aspects of patent prosecution, including evaluating new technology for patentability; portfolio counseling, including prosecution strategies; formulating and conducting right-to-use or freedom-to-operate searches; and preparing, filing and prosecuting patent applications at the PTO. We regularly handle complex PTO proceedings, including reexamination and reissue proceedings, appeals to the Board of Patent Appeals and Interferences and negotiating and preparing patent license agreements, confidentiality agreements, know-how licenses and IP and technology transfer agreements.
Because virtually all successful business is global, we also help build a client’s patent portfolio worldwide by filing and prosecuting applications in the PCT, EPO and all foreign countries. Inventa Capital works with clients to identify the countries where they need to file strategically to eliminate the cost associated with filing applications in non-strategic countries.
