our services

we’re here to help you protect your innovative ideas

revenue focused patent preparation and prosecution

 Dana Legal Services specializes in preparing and prosecuting patent applications involving complex technologies. We provide our clients with clear expectations of the work needed to prepare their patent application, and focus on individual needs, instead of the “one size fits all” approach. 

Revenue patents are what set Dana Legal Services apart from the rest. We ask the questions necessary to understand your invention, as well as the entirety of your business model.  Having your entire business model in mind, helps us protect not just your innovation, but also your future revenue stream. This is a unique method to approach patent protection and keeps not only the here and now in mind, but also the longevity of your business.

patent assertions

Received a “Dear Infringer” letter? We can help. Our attorneys have extensive experience helping clients successfully defend against patents asserted in litigation or pre-litigation actions. We leverage our technical expertise to quickly analyze the asserted patents and identify highly relevant prior art. In addition, we can analyze accused products (or accused standards) to identify strong non-infringement positions.

patent post-grant proceedings

We handle all types of post-grant proceedings, such as ex parte reexamination and inter partes review (IPR). When representing petitioners, our attorneys draw on their extensive patent prosecution and litigation experience – and their technical expertise – to identify the most relevant prior art and draft thorough petitions that are more likely to pass the scrutiny of the Patent Trial and Appeal Board (PTAB). When representing patent owners, our attorneys draw on these same skills to identify petition weaknesses and craft convincing arguments for patentability.

trademark portfolio analysis 

Your brand is a vital part to your business. Protecting that brand with a strategic trademark portfolio is important.  Management of any given company’s trademark portfolio will vary as there is much more to trademarks than just registration and issuance.  Our attorneys have managed various trademark portfolios and are ready to manage your companies.
