AGG handles all aspects of patent preparation and prosecution at the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office (PTO). Our patent attorneys have the legal and technical skills and experience to deal with complex technology. For example, our patent attorneys have advanced degrees and relevant industry experience in major technology areas, including biotechnology, biochemistry, chemistry, computer science, mechanical engineering, medical devices, optics, pharmaceutical, and physics. The IP practice also includes attorneys that have worked for the PTO and have the insight to understand the best ways to address issues before the agency to meet their client’s goals.
We also help our clients build worldwide patent portfolios by filing and prosecuting applications in foreign countries through the PCT, EPO, or with individual filings. We work with our clients to strategically identify the countries where they should file, thereby saving unnecessary costs. In addition, we coordinate the domestic and foreign prosecution effort to maximize coverage and minimize conflicts and costs during prosecutions and maintenance periods.
