Norris McLaughlin’s patent attorneys know that protecting valuable IP assets starts with drafting high-quality patent applications. Every patent application we prosecute is drafted with litigation in mind – we prosecute patents that withstand post-grant challenges and enforcement litigation.
Several of our patent attorneys formerly served as patent examiners at the USPTO, which enables us to offer clients effective counsel shaped with inside knowledge of the examination process. Our team also is experienced in conducting exhaustive research required for invention (or patent) mining, which aids our patent attorneys in investigating, processing, and analyzing patent documents.
Our experience drafting thousands of patent applications over the years has helped us to hone a nimble and flexible process that can adapt to the demands of our clients. We serve domestic and international clients in a wide range of manufacturing, marketing, and service industries, including medical devices, health care, pharmaceuticals, chemicals, biotechnology, electronics, telecommunications, consumer foods, consumer products, computer hardware and software, e-commerce and mobile technology, and banking.
