Patents protect new and unique inventions. We help you strategically patent your inventions, in the U.S. and internationally. We use utility patents to protect the functional features of your products and processes (how they work) and design patents to protect the ornamental features of your products (how they look). Our mission is to help you chart an effective and realistic path to valuable patent rights.
RPL does more than just file patent applications. We are experienced in every aspect of patent law. We manage inter partes reviews at the USPTO. We manage patent litigation in the federal courts. We negotiate patent licenses, patent sales, and joint development agreements in which intellectual property is featured. We also provide due diligence research and other support for patent-related corporate transactions.
Whether you are a potential client, or an attorney who needs help on a patent-related matter, we will be happy to assist you.
Patent monetization requires maintenance and enforcement. RPL protects issued patent rights to be asserted against infringers.
Patent applications protect your inventions. RPL writes patents for your inventions and helps to file them around the world.
Design patents protect the ornamental, visual features of products and are particularly suited to prevent knockoff imitations.
Utility patents protect your invention's features and functions and can be filed as provisional or non-provisional patent applications.
A PCT application sets an international priority date for your patent and buys you time to determine in which countries you will pursue protection.
Patent licensing is one way to generate revenue from your patent portfolio. RPL can tailor a patent license for your specific needs.
Offensively or defensively, RPL partners with experienced patent trial attorneys to manage all stages of your patent litigation.
