Our lawyers understand the science and engineering behind these chemical discoveries and have the legal experience to protect, advocate, and leverage intellectual property assets.  Our clients rely on us to analyze their patent portfolios and provide comprehensive, accurate assessments of their intellectual property assets, determining their value and identifying where protection is needed. We routinely develop prosecution strategies; counsel on business-related issues, including freedom to operate analyses and strategies for generating income from intellectual property assets; write opinions and provide ongoing counseling for new and existing technologies; litigate; conduct due diligence; negotiate and draft intellectual property license agreements; and provide trademark prosecution and counseling services.
