Global Patent Prosecution Issues
When it comes to a business’ intellectual property portfolio, today’s sophisticated executives and entrepreneurs need patent attorneys and legal advice that does more than just set and observe technical limits. They need a patent attorney who understands the larger picture, one who understands how intellectual property functions within the clients’ global business strategies and the evolving international market.
Often a competitive advantage is not geographically limited and encompasses a global market. Martensen IP law associates itself with key international parties to leverage expert advice throughout the globe. And through these contacts and our experience, we give clients astute advice on when and how to invest in a global intellectual property portfolio. Many of our patent attorneys have traveled and lived throughout the world, and as a result understand well the global strategic needs of today’s business executives and investors. In meeting these needs, our job is to provide legal guidance that is responsive to the clients’ specific goals and strategies.
Martensen IP routinely provides legal counseling to executives and investors in areas including, but not limited to:
• Infringement and validity of patents
• International trademark registration under the Madrid Protocols
• Freedom to operate investigations
• Product clearance investigations
• Patent Cooperation Treaty compliance
In providing this legal guidance, Martensen IP regularly seeks opportunities to add value to the business as a key member of its clients’ teams.
Martensen IP’s ability to form part of a larger advisory team for a business and its investors is an additional hallmark of the firm’s approach to foreign prosecution matters.
