Patent Prosecution & Strategic Counseling

Partnership with Clients Drives Successful Representation

​There's more to protecting client innovations than filing and prosecuting patents. Mintz does that well. Exceptionally well, in fact. As noted by Ocean Tomo in its 2016 patent quality report naming our practice among the top 20 in the nation. But our value is most evident when our team works alongside clients to chart the course — using landscape analysis, opinions, and strategic portfolio assessment and analysis to optimize IP programs.

Our Approach

We approach our patent work with a deep understanding of the industries you compete in. And an appreciation for the strategic advantage that a creative, forward-looking portfolio strategy provides. Working alongside company clients like Hyundai, J&J, Nokia, and Allergan — and academic and research institutions such as Harvard, Caltech, University of California, and Johns Hopkins — we identify valuable innovations and assess the market for those innovations. Develop strategies to create new patent protections and strengthen existing ones. And help prepare and implement patent processes and procedures.

  • Develop portfolio strategies
  • Draft, file, and prosecute patents
  • Conduct due diligence
  • Prepare opinions
