McGlew & Tuttle has specialized in Patent law for over 60 years and has secured thousands of patents for our global Clients.
Filing a patent provides legal protection for an inventor’s unique and novel designs or inventions, giving the inventor exclusive rights to use, sell, or license the invention for a limited period of time. This can prevent others from using or selling the invention without permission, allowing the inventor to potentially profit from their creation. Additionally, obtaining a patent can enhance the value of a business and provide a competitive advantage in the marketplace by preventing others from copying the invention.

U.S. Patent Office Trials
McGlew & Tuttle is a law firm with extensive experience in USPTO post-grant proceedings, including patent interferences and ex parte and inter-partes reexamination. They have a team of specialists who have successfully advocated clients’ interests across various technologies in the USPTO, district courts, and the Federal Circuit. With the America Invents Act, new inter partes proceedings will be added to the U.S. system of post-grant patent review, which will be adversarial and often require testimony, cross-examination of witnesses and experts, and a complex motions and discovery practice.

McGlew & Tuttle’s USPTO Patent Trials litigators are qualified to counsel clients on the strategic uses of the new USPTO proceedings, including consideration of settlement and arbitration of disputes, based on decades of inter-partes experience.
