Industrial Products

Industrial products allow companies to do more with less, which means less power, less footprint, and lower costs. Despite the diversity of the industry, the IP challenges are the same. Our multidisciplinary team views intellectual property as a competitive, business and financial asset that must be protected, managed, and enforced to its maximum value.

Companies are being forced to look closely at how they exploit and protect their intellectual capital because of industry convergence and leapfrogging technology. The purchase, sale, and licensing of intellectual assets can help reduce risk, speed time-to-market, and give companies a competitive edge. Protecting intellectual property against infringement is crucial. Leveraging innovation is the key.

Our expertise spans many sectors. A few examples include:

  • Machinery for agriculture
  • Construction, mining, and other heavy equipment
  • Fluid control equipment, pumps and seals
  • Equipment for foodservice and retail.
  • Lighting and other fixtures
  • Containers and packaging
  • Rubber and plastic products

We have assembled a multidisciplinary team that includes technical professionals and attorneys with industry and academic experience in areas like chemical engineering, aeronautics, industrial and systems engineering. The team integrates across all IP functions including patent prosecution (the team also includes ex-patent examiners from the United States), licensing and transactional support as well as litigation in all venues and overall IP strategy.
