Once your patent issues, you can enforce your patent rights to protect your technology from competitors and obtain licensing revenue. The claims of the issued patent must be broad enough to cover relevant infringing activity. In addition, the specification and claims must have been correctly drafted in order to withstand any challenges that may be brought against a patent by an infringer.
If a patent is worth any significant amount of money, an infringer will hire a patent law firm to challenge the validity and enforceability of the patent. It is therefore essential that the patent attorney who drafts and prosecutes your application have significant knowledge of relevant federal court decisions and federal court proceedings so that your patent can be found valid and infringed if necessary. At Stonebridge IP our attorneys have the requisite knowledge and experience before the Patent Office and the federal courts to ensure that your patent fully protects your technology.
