Patent Procurement and Related Services

DiBerardino McGovern IP Group LLC provides counseling and legal services related to U.S. and international patent rights, including filing, prosecution, and maintenance of U.S. and foreign patents.

We work with clients through all aspects of the domestic patent process, including developing and implementing invention harvesting and patent portfolio management strategies, trade secret analysis, conducting patentability searches and evaluation, drafting patent applications, and prosecuting patent applications before the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office. Our patent prosecution services include working with the Patent Office to advance our clients’ applications by presenting our clients’ perspective in Examiner interviews and during oral arguments before the Board of Patent Appeals and Interferences.  For patents that have issued, the firm is experienced in reissue applications and post-grant procedures. The firm also collaborates with a network of attorneys in non-U.S. jurisdictions to assist clients in securing foreign patent rights.

Strategic IP Counseling

The firm counsels clients on infringement detection, provides information on options for enforcement, and we prepare opinions of counsel. We also evaluate licensing and sale opportunities for our clients, and we assist with the drafting and negotiation of IP licenses.

DiBerardino McGovern IP Group LLC also helps clients evaluate existing patents by developing and implementing prior art searches, preparing invalidity and non-infringement arguments, and providing advice on the validity and enforceability of patents.  When necessary, we also provide counseling on design-arounds.

DiBerardino McGovern IP Group LLC is experienced in conducting due diligences to evaluate IP issues associated with investments, corporate acquisitions, and patent purchases.  When a client is planning to release a new product, the firm is available to provide freedom-to-operate and clearance analyses.
