Patent Procurement

RatnerPrestia has earned a solid reputation for performing patent procurement with the highest quality standards for its clients. We obtain patent protection in every technology imaginable including nanotechnology, biotechnology, chemistry, electronics, complex mechanical technologies, and software and computer architecture just to name a few.

RatnerPrestia understands that a patent does not provide value to a client unless it meets the clients’ business objectives. Whether these objectives include developing an exclusive marketing position, building a licensing portfolio, obtaining a negotiating chip or a combination of these goals, they have a common theme: creating a competitive advantage.

Prior to undertaking preparation of a patent application, our professionals work with the client to learn the client’s commercial environment and develop a tailored procurement strategy. RatnerPrestia attorneys often participate in client patent review meetings to maintain perspective of the client’s overall business and ensure the tailored strategy remains consistent with corporate objectives.

Each developed strategy is used to guide all phases of patent procurement, from searching strategy, specification and claim drafting, and negotiating with the Patent Office. During prosecution of the patent application, we maintain a dialog with the client to confirm that the claims continue to have value in view of the ever-changing business environment.

With such cooperative efforts, RatnerPrestia strives to help clients protect their innovations through patents that can be used to create market barriers for competitors, establish royalty streams or provide the client with negotiating leverage.
