patent staff inundated?
Sending excess patent work to Bay Area Intellectual
Property Group can be a cost effective way to reduce your docket backlog
to a manageable level. We can help you avoid costly extension fees,
and the even more costly loss of patent term resulting from the new
term extension act. Many corporations and organizations have found
it a more effective option than to use in-house attorneys or large Patent
Festo concerning you?
definitely should be. The Doctrine
of Equivalents is under significant attack by Festo ,
resulting in a much reduced scope of Patent protection, especially in
cases of careless patent drafting or prosecution. Bay Area IP is intimately
aware of the impact of Festo, and continually tracks the impact of all
relevant court decisions. Many IP firms, and in-house staff, have not
yet incorporated the “best practices” that address Festo, and other
court cases. Their indifference or lack of awareness can cost you dearly,
and result in a largely worthless piece of paper that you thought was
an otherwise valuable patent. Do not risk contaminating your application’s
file wrapper, contact Bay Area IP to explore your best interests.
budget becoming increasingly inefficient?
your patent department’s annual budget while reducing stress on your
in-house personnel. Bay Area IP, unlike some large firms, will not
hide charges (e.g., for everyday communications and notices) that run
up your monthly bill. We only charge you upon completion of work related
to filings at the USPTO as set forth in our written price quotation-
you do not have to worry about invoicing surprises.
you receiving uncaring service from large law firms who have first year
associates work you case?
Area IP gives each client individual attention and concern. We like
to think of ourselves as a partner in your cause. As a corporate client
your case will be handled directly by our founder whose future growth
is invested in your long-term happiness. At Bay Area IP you will not
get lost as noise in a large firm’s practice, which practice often results
in botched or perpetually prosecuted cases. When you transfer your
“problem” cases to us, you can rest assured that not only will we clean
up the poor, inattentive, work of other firms, but also we make sure
to move the case efficiently forward with your best interests in mind.
