Patent and Trademark Prosecution
Lewis Rice has been recognized by Intellectual Property Today® as a "Top Patent Firm" and "Top Trademark Firm" for many years, with our focus concentrating on quality over quantity of work. Our entire patent and trademark prosecution team understands the need to create meaningful patent and trademark protections capable of withstanding scrutiny if an enforcement action should become necessary. Thus, the approach at Lewis Rice is to deal closely with the inventor or owner to assimilate a working knowledge of the subject matter of the patent or trademark; conduct studies to determine the likelihood of obtaining an issued patent or trademark before our clients expend a substantial capital investment in an invention, trade name, or slogan; and then follow through with portfolio maintenance as the need arises. Although we have highly qualified prosecution attorneys on our team, we staff each matter leanly so that each lawyer working on a prosecution matter can gain an in-depth knowledge of our clients' intellectual property needs without running up costs.
