Patent Prosecution

Schwegman, Lundberg & Woessner attorneys know how to build patents to give you the best coverage. We know how to concentrate our efforts for the optimal use of your time and resources. Our patents are held to a consistently high level of quality whether you need us to produce one or one hundred. Our attorneys use the same best practices and sophisticated technology to prepare every patent we file.

Top ranking patent quality

Schwegman is consistently named one of the top US intellectual property law firms for securing quality patents for their clients:

  • First in overall patent quality for three consecutive years by patentRatings LLC, as reported in IP Law & Business magazine, with top 10 rankings in chemical, biotech, computers/electrical and medical patents.
  • Top five in the country for patent quality and technical strength: by the Law Firm Patent ScorecardTM.
  • Top 10 for healthcare, information technology, consumer electronics and #1 in overall quality by Intellectual Asset Management (IAM) magazine, in collaboration with Ocean Tomo, for the past two years.

Are your patents complete?

The stringency required for patent applications is increasing while IP budgets stay flat or tighten. Now case law requires disclosure of not only prior art, but also office actions and foreign prosecution documents. Not every firm does this completely, and those patents may not stand up as well to a challenge. At SLW our advanced technology allows us to ensure that these items are included without increasing your cost.

Are your patents efficient?

We are the only IP law firm that captures and retains 100% of prosecution history, including the claims associated with each patent, in an interactive and searchable database. Our ClaimTrackerTM software saves attorney time (as much as 25%) and allows us to spend more of our time applying knowledge and delivering a better product.

Are your patents smart?

Our attorneys and clients can use our databases to obtain a graphic overview of the history of claims, interactively review file histories, or study the citation history of prior art. We also offer online access to your files and reports. Our technology keeps track of all prior art and communication for any of your patents and connects your related cases, so if you need a question answered or a similar patent filed, we’re ready right away.

Our attorneys, staff and advisors are clear communicators who enjoy working with inventors, engineers, designers and other members of your company. The combination of our expertise, easy-to-work-with style, use of best practices, and innovative technology means that you get better patents faster.
