Helping Clients With Patent Prosecution
At The Law Firm of John & Morgan, P.C., we have represented numerous clients in a variety of technologies. We have represented some of the biggest organizations in our area, including numerous Fortune 100 and Fortune 500 companies. We have prosecuted U.S. and foreign patent applications for AMD, Alcatel-Lucent, Lockheed Martin, GlobalFoundries, Dow Corning, Grant Prideco, Cyberonics, FMC Technologies Inc., Western Geco, University of Texas and Texas A&M.
Extensive Knowledge In All Areas Of The Law
The advanced technological backgrounds of our attorneys and agents make us especially adept at handling sophisticated, high-technology prosecution. In fact, we have practiced in the high-technology fields of microprocessors, cellular telephony, computers, electronic memory, lasers, guidance systems, semiconductors, television, graphics, internet communications, electronic security, medical devices, biotechnology oil exploration and production, nanotubes and the like. This experience can be tremendously beneficial to any and all of our clients.
Our patent prosecution is synergistically benefited by our litigation experience. All of our lawyers and patent agents who prosecute are also involved in assisting clients with their litigation needs. Litigation can be an eye-opening experience for those that mainly prosecute, exposing them to the practicalities of how and why patent prosecution is attacked during litigation. This exposure leads to a better understanding of the ramifications of each and every step taken during the prosecution of a patent application. Avoiding problems during prosecution will produce patents that are more resistant to attacks during litigation, and thus, are more valuable to our clients.
We Use Alternative Billing Arrangements
We are especially conscious of our clients’ inside counsel’s and management’s need for as much certainty as possible when faced with the difficult task of budgeting for future prosecution expenses. The firm performs a significant amount of its prosecution work on a fixed-fee basis. Of course, several of our engagements are traditional hourly rate arrangements, and budgets, task-based billing and other similar requirements attendant to the specific needs of our clients.
