Of the many factors that contribute to a company’s success, the most powerful determinant is also the simplest: an exceptional product. Protection of unique resources—these end products, plus the creative processes that bring them to market—is a critical line of defense in the ongoing pursuit of competitive advantage. The intellectual property and patent attorneys in the Tech Group at Lowenstein Sandler guide technologically sophisticated companies and their investors on the identification, protection, and strategic use of intellectual property. Chambers USA: America's Leading Lawyers for Business commends, "This New Jersey heavyweight acts for a range of Fortune 500 companies from the pharmaceutical, life sciences and technology industries…In addition to supporting the corporate department, the group attracts its own client base through its litigation prowess and patent and licensing capability, assisting a number of startup companies to build portfolios."
Our attorneys include registered patent lawyers and practitioners in intellectual property, technology, and privacy law. Our patent prosecutors hold degrees in physics, chemistry, biology, electrical engineering, and mathematics, allowing key insight into the processes that create virtually every imaginable product and patentable method or process. Our IP attorneys also collaborate with business lawyers to advise on the intellectual property implications of any corporate transaction in a technology-based or science-based company’s business cycle.
Our patent attorneys help identify potentially valuable inventions, prepare and prosecute patent applications, and conduct related opinion and counseling work, for companies ranging in size from start-ups and the venture funds that back those companies to Fortune 100s and leading research universities. Our lawyers work on products, methods, and processes ranging from stem cell therapies to systems on a chip, semiconductors, fiber optic switching systems, and financial services software.
We also help individuals and companies properly register, secure, and maintain trademarks, copyrights, and trade secrets. We counsel owners and licensees of every type of intellectual property on the gamut of licensing and strategy issues. As businesses are increasingly defined by the way they harness and utilize the collective brainpower of their personnel, we help ensure that their intellectual capital is not only protected, but leveraged in a way that furthers their business goals.
