Having your entire business model in mind, helps us protect not just your innovation, but also your future revenue stream.

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.

assertive trademark enforcement
Creating your trademarks and service marks, submitting them to the USPTO, and obtaining your registration is all just the start of the process. Your company must now take the necessary actions to make sure that no third parties use these marks without your authorization.

The trademark specialists at Dana Legal Services will help you vigilantly monitor for third party use of your marks for any indication of current or potential infringement.
