Leading universities, research institutions, venture capital firms, startups, and mid-size companies rely on Pabst Patent Group LLP (PPG) to secure patent protection for their most important discoveries.At PPG, we approach patent procurement from a business perspective, with a focus on delivering the maximum quantifiable value. We draft and file patent applications with commercially meaningful claims that will attract investors as well as companies looking for licensing opportunities—and we work to ensure that each patent will hold up to the scrutiny of investment firms and be enforceable against potential challenges from competitors.
Combining creativity with aggressive advocacy, we are relentless about prosecuting patent applications that capture the broadest possible scope. No matter how many modifications may be required, we keep coming back with innovative solutions aligned with our clients’ business goals.
In the event that an application’s claims are rejected, we have a strong track record of success in presenting persuasive written and oral arguments before the Patent Trial and Appeal Board (PTAB) as well as the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit. We also frequently assist with appeals before the European Patent Office Board of Appeals.
For cross-border patent protection and international clients, we leverage our extensive experience in international patent prosecution and post-grant proceedings to provide global patent strategies. We regularly prepare and file Patent Cooperation Treaty (PCT) applications, and we partner with a carefully vetted, extensive global network of law firms to protect our clients' intellectual property in jurisdictions all over the world.
