Volpe and Koenig: A Strategic Partner and Trusted Advisor
Patents are often the best way to protect your intellectual property; however, other types of protection (e.g., trade secrets) are sometimes more appropriate. Add to this the expense of the patent application and prosecution process, and acquiring a professional opinion on whether patent protection is worthwhile to pursue—one that leverages expertise in your industry, the underlying technology of your invention, and patent law—is a vital part of this process.
Our attorneys evaluate an innovation’s novelty, utility, and non-obviousness as compared to the field’s prior art, taking into account a client’s business model and its encapsulating industry. Research into previously issued and filed patents that are potentially similar aids in determining the viability of pursuing protection for an innovation. Volpe and Koenig brings our knowledge of your industry as well as that of your firm’s business model to get you to the next step – evaluating then realizing long-term objectives and strategies.
