Patent Consultations and More . . .

Patent law, whether you are facing ownership issues, protection issues, infringement issues, or other, is steeped in non-intuitive purposes and targets.

When you do not know who owns the patent, whether or not a patent is valid, or whether or not a patent is infringed, start with a consultation.  Your questions or doubts might be turn out to be negligible or very serious, or somewhere in-between.

When a 'cease and desist' letter arrives, or when you believe one should be sent, start with a consultation.  The issues might be turn out to be negligible or very serious, or somewhere in-between.

When someone else is patenting, or has patented, your invention, start with a consultation.  The issues might be turn out to be negligible or very serious, or somewhere in-between.
