Patent Services

Parker Poe knows that intellectual property assets, in particular patents, are vital to your business. Our attorneys, most of whom are registered to practice before the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO), provide legal services to entities at the forefront of their industry sectors. We understand that navigating the patent landscape requires an efficient and seamless approach, but that no single approach suits every client’s needs.

Our attorneys assist clients on a broad range of matters, including by avoiding costly pitfalls, procuring and monetizing patents, providing transactional support, and, when necessary, litigating patent claims to protect assets, defend rights to practice, and mitigate exposure.

Beyond merely understanding the applicable laws, our attorneys draw on their education and experience in an array of scientific fields and work hand-in-hand with clients to understand their development processes and ultimate business goals. Parker Poe provides a balanced, pragmatic approach to achieving our clients’ business and financial objectives in a responsive, efficient, and effective manner.
