A strong patent portfolio is often the most critical asset for emerging and established businesses. Clients rely on Sheridan Ross’ experienced and innovative professionals to develop comprehensive protection strategies for their intellectual assets. Our attorneys and technical specialists have in-depth knowledge across a range of industries, yet regardless of industry, our counsel is rooted in the day-to-day business decisions our clients face.
Our clients are individual inventors, small startup companies, government agencies, and Fortune 500 companies throughout the world and across a spectrum of technologies and industries. They rely on us to develop, register and protect their patent rights, often as part of an all-inclusive approach to managing their intellectual property portfolios.
Our patent lawyers and agents address all facets of IP rights. We assess opportunities, evaluate options, and give our clients the information they need to make informed and knowledgeable decisions about their intellectual assets. With decades of patent prosecution experience, we are as skilled at handling patents domestically with the USPTO as we are at pursuing worldwide patent protection. Indeed, we routinely handle patent prosecution matters, oppositions, and appeals both in the United States and in foreign jurisdictions. Our firm is annually ranked among the top law firms based on the number of patent filings, and our peers consistently recognize our professionals for the quality of their work.
Our clients benefit from our patent team’s diverse technical background in fields ranging from chemical, electrical and mechanical engineering to biotechnology, pharmaceuticals, and biochemistry, and from mathematics and physics to business methods and computer science. Many of our professionals hold advanced degrees in their respective fields, and most have experience working in technical industries before joining our firm—allowing them to bring highly specialized knowledge and experience to their technical areas of practice.
