Our drafting and procurement team is composed of seasoned attorneys, most of whom hold advanced degrees in a wide range of technologies and have academic or industry experience. Our practice, both in drafting and prosecution, focuses on understanding and achieving our clients’ business objectives and emphasizes collaboration between our attorneys, inventors, corporate intellectual property professionals, and agents in other jurisdictions.
Our team has experience in patent drafting and procurement in many different contexts – from handling large patent portfolios with significant autonomy to collaborating intimately with clients on high value patents involved or soon-to-be involved in litigation. We have significant experience in drafting and modifying claims to cover important commercial embodiments of our clients and their competitors and to avoid facile design-arounds.
Our team is well-versed in the switches and levers of practice before the USPTO. When needed, we are able to counsel our clients on cost-effective prosecution before the USPTO, expediting prosecution when patents are needed quickly, and negotiating ex parte appeals when tough cases arise.
Element IP relies on deep experience in the business and practice of patent prosecution to provide its clients with first-rate legal service at a competitive price point.
