Patent and Emerging Technology Law

Build filing strategies, enhance IP protection, and achieve your strategic business objectives.

Hawley Troxell’s patent and emerging technology attorneys are well-versed in coordinating US and foreign filing strategies, working with a multi-national network to enhance IP protection globally.

Having worked with clients ranging from Fortune 100 corporations to individual inventors and start-ups, we have extensive experience in patent licensing and program development. We partner with our clients to achieve their strategic business objectives. Along with partnering with you to achieve your business objectives, we prepare non-infringement and validity opinions, provide strategic technology licensing, portfolio management counseling, manage invention review committees, and assist with mergers and acquisitions.

In addition to decades of practicing patent law, what sets us apart is the fact that we have extensive in-house corporate experience. Our attorneys have not only prepared and prosecuted several hundred patent applications to issuance, but they have also personally implemented, maintained, and licensed some of the largest patent programs and portfolios in Silicon Valley. This combination of legal and corporate perspective allows us to provide business solutions that are cost-effective and more applicable to our clients’ needs than those provided by typical patent attorneys who often lack practical experience in a corporate environment.

We are able to readily communicate with inventors at their level of understanding and help them broaden the scope of their claims beyond the project at hand. We take time to really understand our clients’ technological and business environment so we can help them strategically position themselves for now and well into the future.

We have a proven track record in the following areas:

  • Microprocessor design and fabrication
  • Computing systems and components
  • IC packaging and fabrication
  • Low-voltage CMOS/Low-power devices
  • Circuit design and fabrication
  • Database architecture and design
  • Memory circuit design and fabrication
  • Software applications
  • Mobile applications
  • Cloud computing
  • Financial management
