Chambliss has secured and protected thousands of patents held in the U.S. and abroad. Acting with integrity and genuine enthusiasm for our clients' inventions, our registered patent attorneys advise inventors on all their legal needs including the identification of inventions, preparation and prosecution of patent applications, licensing, and infringement. Our patent lawyers, who have engineering backgrounds, work on patents in a broad range of technical disciplines including mechanical, electrical, and chemical and help clients navigate the domestic and foreign standards for patentability. We have substantial experience with all types of applications including provisional, utility, design, and Patent Cooperation Treaty (PCT) applications.
Invention profitability is just as important to us as it is to our clients. Our intellectual property team develops individualized, strategic plans for protecting inventions and enforcing patent rights against infringers. We also proactively counsel clients on ways to get the most out of their patents, such as preparing license, nondisclosure, and other agreements. When clients have a dispute, we prepare opinion letters regarding infringement and the validity of the patents, and we represent them in court. Our team has a wealth of experience in IP litigation and has helped clients monetize their patents, sometimes by millions of dollars.
