In 2018, the robotics market was valued at over $30 billion and is expected to register a compound annual growth rate of 25% during the five-year period ending in 2023. Applications using robots are rapidly growing beyond workhorses on industrial shop floors to various applications including surgical assistants, delivery vehicles, autonomous vehicles, exoskeletons, and unmanned aerial vehicles, among others.
We have patent prosecution experience in a wide variety of technologies. We don't simply file and prosecute patent applications – we provide strategy and insight to assist our clients in building patent portfolios that can be leveraged to achieve their objectives. We utilize our prior experiences to develop direct, conversational relationships with our clients' engineers and inventors to actively assist in identifying and protecting our clients' inventions.
Examples of our work include:
- Assisted a client with developing and executing a strategy to build a significant patent portfolio, which was instrumental in securing over $50 million of funding.
- Worked with a client's engineers to harvest more than 30 discrete inventions.
We also provide our robotics clients with due diligence reviews and patent opinions, including freedom to operate, non-infringement, and invalidity opinions. We advise our clients on a broad range of intellectual property-based transactions, including patent and technology licensing and technical development agreements.
