Is your patent lawyer a jack-of-all-trades?

Practicing patent law, and being a patent attorney, involves wearing a lot of different hats. The average California patent lawyer carries out so many different functions that it would probably make your head spin. In this respect, one of the most important characteristics of any good patent lawyer involves being a generalist.

An Irvine patent lawyer needs to be a "jack-of-all-trades" when it comes to understanding different industries, including science, medical, engineering and other fields. That's because a patent could be related to a highly complicated scientific or technological invention. A patent, however, could just as easily relate to a very simple gadget that no one else has thought of before.

In respect to being a generalist, a patent attorney also needs to know which experts to reach out to in order to fully understand the factors involved with a particular patent.

At the Law Offices of Roland Tong, PC, the wide range of cases we have represented certainly exhibits our intellectual flexibility and ability to understand different industries. We have represented cases pertaining to dental prostheses, computer software applications, video games, printers, ink cartridge manufacturers, multinational patent disputes, slot machines, startup companies and more.

The representation of California startup companies is one area of patent law that we have put a lot of focus on. We've found that bigger firms -- armed with large coffers of cash and powerful lawyers -- may try to infringe on a smaller company's patent rights. In these cases, it's important for any patent lawyer representing a small company or startup to recognize these challenges, and defend against them appropriately.

Are you dealing with a patent infringement issue? Sound legal counsel from an experienced patent attorney can assist you in protecting your intellectual property rights.
