Intellectual Property Attorneys
The attorneys of Campbell Stephenson LLP are focused on providing clients with high quality intellectual property services tailored to their business needs. From Fortune 500 corporations to start-ups, we are dedicated to providing professional services and work product to every client in a timely and cost-effective manner. We also have administrative staff members with wide experience in patent and other intellectual property matters.

Patent Prosecution: Foreign and domestic patent preparation and prosecution is at the core of our practice. All of our attorneys are registered to practice before the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office. We assist clients in obtaining patent protection in numerous technical fields, and have extensive experience preparing and prosecuting original, continuation, reissue, and reexamination applications, including handling appeals before the Board of Patent Appeals and Interferences of the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office. We also work closely with well-established foreign associates throughout the world to prosecute applications before foreign patent offices.

Intellectual Property Counseling: Procuring patents is simply not enough. We assist clients in developing intellectual property strategies that protect a variety of forms of intellectual property and serve the client's business goals. Our attorneys help clients establish and maintain programs to solicit invention disclosures from employees, choose the best form of intellectual property protection, and develop strategies for growing an intellectual property portfolio. In addition to evaluating a client's patent portfolio, we can evaluate a competitor's intellectual property so as to identify strengths and weaknesses and fine tune the client's intellectual property strategy. We can also provide our clients with complex technical and legal assistance in patent, trademark, and trade secret litigation, including patent litigation before the International Trade Commission, and pre-litigation patent analysis and investigation. We are also experienced in conducting due diligence investigations.

Opinions of Counsel: Whether facing the threat of patent litigation, seeking to design around a competitor's product, or wanting to analyze a new product with respect to existing patents, clients can turn to us for opinions of counsel. Our attorneys are experienced in preparing opinions regarding infringement, non-infringement, validity, and invalidity, as well as design-around and product clearance reports.
