Patent Agent/Scientific Advisor Program

The patent agent/scientific advisor program at the firm benefits from scientists who are trained in a variety of technical and scientific aspects of patent prosecution, as well as being highly skilled in scientific writing. These scientists are responsible for drafting the technical portions of patent specifications, reviewing the scientific background literature for consultation with attorneys, and searching the scientific literature in connection with patentability and infringement issues. Generally, the billing rates of our patent agents/scientific advisors are significantly lower than those of our attorneys. The use of patent agents/scientific advisors allows the firm to provide what we believe to be the most cost-effective, scientifically-advanced representation available.
