Intellectual Property Law

Intellectual property law, its rules, and case law that govern it are constantly evolving. This is especially true with respect to patents. For instance, how a patent practitioner would draft a patent application just five years ago is completely different than how one should draft an application today.

Recent Case Laws

The changes dictated by recent case law are so sweeping that a patent practitioner's failure to understand the effects of these changes leaves a client at a substantial disadvantage. Learn more about these truly historical changes with respect to patent law.
