Patent Legal Services

We provide a full range of patent legal services

CrossPond Law specializes in writing patent applications to protect your inventions. We work closely with clients to ensure that the application is accurate and comprehensive, meeting the complex requirements of patent law. We guide clients through the application process to secure patent protection and maximize the value of their intellectual property.

CrossPond Law files your patent application at the USPTO, and guides clients through the examination process after filing. We respond to office actions, communicate with patent examiners, appeal final rejections, identify opportunities for accelerated examination, and take other actions to steer applications to issue as smoothly and economically as possible.

CrossPond Law prepares and files PCT applications for global patent protection, and works with local counsel in foreign countries to obtain patents for clients in those jurisdictions. In a global marketplace, foreign patents can provide valuable protection for your inventions.

CrossPond Law offers freedom-to-operate analysis to clients. We assess the potential risk of infringement of existing patents, and advise clients on how to avoid potential legal challenges, early in the design process – before manufacturing begins. With our help, clients can make informed decision about the commercialization of their product or service, and reduce the risk of legal challenges. 

CrossPond Law offers patent portfolio analysis services to help clients right-size their worldwide patent portfolios based on their business goals, product focus, target markets, manufacturing locations, competitor locations, and other factors. We also work with clients to identify and close gaps in their patent portfolios. CrossPond Law provides analysis and recommendations to optimize a patent portfolio’s value, while minimizing the cost of maintaining it.
