Bacon & Thomas views the preparation and prosecution
of mechanical patent application as posing significant challenges in navigating
through well-established technologies and distinguishing the significance of
an invention over other known technologies. Our patent professionals have the
expertise required to meet these challenges in acquiring and protecting the
patent rights of our clients within the mechanical arts.
Bacon & Thomas routinely engages in patent application (utility and design)
preparation, filing, and prosecution before the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office
(USPTO) and routinely works around the world through our network of foreign
associates. Our professionals also frequently conduct patentability and due
diligence reviews; analyze competitor innovations; and prepare validity,
right-to-use, and infringement opinions. We also work closely with you to develop
and maintain strategies for maximizing the benefit of a patent portfolio.
Our professionals have a diverse background in these other fields from academic
and professional experience. Our members have degrees in mechanical engineering,
materials science, engineering mechanics, physics, biomedical, or another relevant
technology. Many members have served in industries related to mechanical fields
or have had years of experience as patent examiners at the USPTO evaluating
Bacon & Thomas strives to serve our domestic and international
clientele through direct contact by discussing the various legal and technical
issues as well as cost considerations, so that you can make better informed
decisions. We make ourselves readily available to assist you and pride ourselves
on teaching our clientele the various intricacies of patent law and the underlying
technology of the inventive subject matter.
