Collectively our attorneys have previous experience serving as former technology company business executives, high tech start-up founders and in-house counsel, “big-law” IP and technology attorneys, U.S. Patent & Trademark Office (USPTO) examiners and judicial clerks. We pride ourselves on understanding the “big picture” business plans of our clients and the necessity of strategically positioning their business assets, including intellectual property assets and technology as part of that plan. We strive to do more than just prepare and prosecute patent applications; we thoroughly analyze each unique business situation, make recommendations, and offer distinctive “out-of-the box” legal solutions concerning law affecting our technology company clients.
The majority of our new clients are referrals from satisfied existing clients in a wide variety of areas of IP, technology law and commercial law. We have drafted and prosecuted over one thousand U.S. and foreign patent applications and over one thousand U.S. and foreign trademarks. We have an active litigation practice that has achieved successful results in over 60 jury trials and multiple non-jury trials, including cases in IP and technology areas as well as wins at the Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit. We have been an integral part of setting up a number of IP programs and strategies for high tech emerging and start-up clients, acted as virtual in-house counsel to these clients, performed IP due diligence for VC investment and M&A transactions, rendered a variety of patent and trademark opinions, and drafted license and asset transfer agreements. We have also effectively monetized a number of patent portfolios and assisted clients in finding buyers and licensees for their intellectual property assets.
In addition to IP, we also offer a full range of commercial and technology law counseling and litigation, including counseling, litigation and administrative proceedings in the areas of trade secrets, non-compete agreements, export control compliance, government contracts, security clearance, Foreign Ownership Control and Influence (FOCI) compliance, and software and e-commerce agreements.
We are dedicated to providing “big-law” service to clients with the flexibility and personal attention that only a smaller firm can provide. The Marbury Law Group structure is streamlined without layers of management or large overhead expenses, which allows us to concentrate on what we do best: providing high quality, personal service to each of our clients at a reasonable rate.
In short, we speak your language, appreciate your business challenges, and have the expertise to help you reach your goals.
