Our attorneys incorporate the latest legal developments into our patent applications and prosecution strategy. Due to our informed approach, comprehensive experience, and diverse backgrounds, we are experts in claim drafting and handling software/business method patents.

We have also developed unique solutions to address various issues emerging from a recent case law. This case law pertains to patent eligible subject matter, such as the “Alice” case. We understand the legal and technical issues that have risen from this case, and we are prepared to assist you with the complexities of patenting software and business methods in light of Alice.

We prepare patent applications and prosecute patents with a focus on enforcement, commercialization, and monetization.

At Berkeley Law and Technology Group, we understand that patents are a major investment. Because of this, we personalize our prosecution approach to fit our client’s specific needs. For example, we can work with you to take a hardline approach to maximize breadth or a flexible approach to reduce prosecution time and costs. We begin our process by evaluating your business strategy and prosecution objectives. Then, we develop a corresponding and effective prosecution strategy to support those objectives.
