Patent Prosecution

The founding partners of Grimes & Yvon LLP are registered U.S. patent attorneys, admitted to practice before the United States Patent & Trademark Office, and have extensive experience prosecuting patent applications and securing issued patents for clients.

In addition, our prior in-depth experience in patent litigation provides a perspective that enables us to carefully craft patent prosecution strategies with an eye toward avoiding common pitfalls that can arise when patents are enforced in court or challenged in post-grant proceedings.

At Grimes & Yvon LLP, we handle the entire patent procurement process – including performing initial invention evaluations, drafting and filing patent applications, and managing the entire patent prosecution/examination process through to issuance of a U.S. patent.  We also work with a network of trusted foreign patent attorneys to secure foreign patent protection when needed.
