Patent procurement, also known as patent prosecution, is the preparation of a patent application and the subsequent pursuit of patent protection for original inventions. Florek & Endres is experienced in obtaining patent protection for individual inventors, start-ups, and established companies across a wide range of industries. Our attorneys are registered to practice before the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office and have technical backgrounds in a number of fields.
In our patent prosecution practice, we work hands-on with inventors and researchers to understand the nature of the invention and develop its novel features with an eye toward producing patents that offer broad protection and opportunities for monetization. Furthermore, our close-knit group of attorneys work collaboratively to ensure that each application has an inter-disciplinary and well-rounded perspective.
