Patent Preparation & Prosecution

Crafting a quality, comprehensive, valuable, and enforceable patent requires an appreciation for the power of language as well as skill in balancing clarity and precision with breadth and wide scope. These qualities can only come from decades of experience in drafting, revising, negotiating, and advocating for quality results—and Hickman Palermo Becker Bingham has it all. We have deep experience in capturing inventions and working with engineers and scientists on their own terms to obtain disclosures with minimum friction and maximum efficiency. We offer high-quality drafting of patent applications and industry-leading expertise in management of the specification, claim drafting, and negotiation with patent examiners. We have lawyers with best-in-class skills in oral advocacy to achieve success in inventor interviews, appeals, and pre-appeal argument. Whether the task is to prepare a provisional submission in a few days to beat a bar date or to craft a series of related applications to comprehensively cover all valuable features of a complete product family, we have the expertise, brilliance, and bandwidth to execute effectively, timely, and efficiently.
