Protecting your most valuable assets. Patent
We have been a patent powerhouse for nearly a century. Clients—including Nobel Prize winners, Fortune 500 companies, technology start-ups, and leading research universities—turn to us to protect their inventions, products, and services while building value in a competitive marketplace.
Our passion is to learn a client’s business vision and to protect it. We know clients’ goals can change over time, and our job is to regularly and proactively re-assess those goals, and adjust our approach accordingly. We have extensive experience building solid patent strategies that allow for flexibility to protect key aspects today, and to adjust protection as needed tomorrow – and we know very well how to lock down that protection at the US Patent Office. When it’s a do-or-die situation with complex technical challenges, clients put their trust in us.
We look at each situation individually, assessing how it relates to your business strategy and goals, and adapt our advice accordingly. We provide practical input and the experienced judgment you need to make important decisions.
You’ll appreciate the remarkable degree of stability among our professionals and can rely on a consistent team that will keep pace with your growth while staying focused on your goals.
Our legal support team includes paralegals, search specialists, international filing specialists, and docketing and research professionals skilled at managing patent portfolios. Working with select international patent firms in over 130 countries, we can choose the right international partner for our clients’ needs and budgets.
We strive to exceed our clients’ expectations when it comes to responsiveness, accessibility, and personal attention, often providing off-the-clock assistance and education to support your business strategies.

Why patent clients say our “level of service is excellent.”
The Wolf Greenfield team consistently meets our needs. We have a long history with the Wolf Greenfield team. They are very diligent and timely in support of our IP portfolio. They also translate things well to the non-IP professionals, including me (GC) and our management team.
The Wolf Greenfield team does an excellent job at helping us think strategically about filing and prosecuting patent applications.
I feel that when I tell investors and other companies that Wolf Greenfield is managing our patents, it really adds a sense of prestige and quality (in judgement) to our start-up.
They use their knowledge of patent law and processes to craft the right strategic plan with me as the client. They understand the science, and place it in context. They are amazingly patient, supportive, and listen...really, really good people to work with.
The team excels at technological expertise, maintaining deadlines and patent success rates. The firm is superior to others with whom I have worked on patent prosecution matters in the past several years.
The level of service is excellent and they have done a lot of what my company needs to protect my position and develop a unique approach to patent inventions.
Wolf Greenfield is very knowledgeable about foreign patent laws, provides sound advice in that area and efficiently manages the global prosecution.
They are very smart and have a deep bench of technical experts in our field. They do a great job of proactively strategizing on our estate and reaching out to us with suggestions.
Our client worked in a competitive industry with high potential for infringement and litigation threats from a particular competitor. We interpreted the scope of the competitor's patent claims and worked to change the design of our client's product to avoid infringement. We also discovered they owned a European patent with broad claims. We successfully opposed the patent and the competitor was left with much narrower claims that posed no infringement risk to our client.
An individual inventor developed a prototype carousel for kitchen storage containers and needed rock-solid IP protection to approach infomercial promoters. We obtained patents broad enough to cover the product and future products or extensions. We assisted in negotiations in an industry known for copycat products. Our client’s product is one of the most successful infomercial products in history. Over six million units were sold in the first six months.
