Our engineering backgrounds and industry experience blanket all aspects of mechanical technologies. We are among the largest mechanical groups in New England, with attorneys and technology specialists whose work is second to none. Clients know we can handle virtually any technology, which means we don’t spend time getting up to speed and can focus, instead, on providing perceptive advice on issues such as new product development, competitive targeting and how the project fits within the overall client objectives. Our strong business and industry acumen allows us to serve as trusted counselors who understand the context in which IP decisions are made. We also spend time educating senior management on IP issues so they can react quickly to opportunities and threats.
Our group’s clients range from industry leaders like BD, Husky Injection Molding and ASSA ABLOY, to leading research institutions like MIT, to emerging startups like Coravin and ClearMotion, and to some of the most recognizable consumer products companies like SharkNinja, Nikon, Burton Snowboards and Keurig Green Mountain. Many of our clients have been with us for decades because they value our consistency and institutional knowledge.
BROAD RANGE OF IP SERVICES
The services we provide are always tied to the business needs of clients, with both a short-term and long-term focus. We take into consideration a client’s plans for growth, locations of key manufacturing activities, downstream markets, industry trends and competitive obstacles, among others. We then might advise on which type of patent application and how many to file, or in which international markets to seek protection, or the benefits of a design patent over a utility patent—all the while considering engineering alternatives and other steps to minimize exposure.
Other services our group provides include: product clearance, patent validity, trade dress protection, intellectual property audits and due diligence, competitive intelligence and monitoring services, licensing and other IP agreements, post-grant proceedings, and infringement enforcement and defense.
