Mirick O'Connell attorneys prepare and prosecute patent applications in the United States and worldwide. Our patent attorneys have diverse technical degrees and years of experience working in their technical fields. These factors allow us to understand and protect our clients' inventions. We also investigate and strategize patentability and freedom-to-operate issues.

Representative Matters

  • Built a portfolio of U.S. and foreign patents for a publicly-traded innovative drug developer that was licensed by a large pharmaceutical company 
  • Developed a patent portfolio with founding inventors for an orthodontic consumer baby product, and successfully out-licensed the portfolio to an international manufacturer
  • Assisted a non-profit licensing office with the strategic development and positioning of an international patent portfolio, based on a university's small-molecule research program, for pharmaceutical partnership
