Behind every successful patent is a good idea: a concept, product or method that needs to be thoroughly protected. At Goodwin Procter we understand every stage of patent prosecution and provide the resources, expertise and experience to guide clients through the process.
Patents are often a company’s most valuable assets. As a large firm with significant resources and a broad range of expertise, we understand the critical importance of maximizing the value of client property. We think about patent prosecution and counseling within the larger context of our clients’ business goals, and act accordingly. Our patent specialists work closely with our patent litigators, some of whom are former patent examiners with the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office, to anticipate how our clients’ business needs and strategies will change over time.
