In managing IP portfolios, the group ensures clients receive an optimal service taking into consideration wide spectrum of business needs, with proper utilization of time and budget restraints.
The synergy between the group’s branches (patent attorneys, lawyers and commercialization company) harnesses the cumulative experience of the professionals to create a unique first-class protection and enforcement strategy. The firm works as a collective unit, collegially and professionally, to protect client’s ideas, ensure his intangible assets and maximize his value and bring about the best results in any legal proceeding locally and overseas.
The group’s exceptional reputation, as reflected, individually and as a group, in local and international official IP Rankings (see below), extends from its broad experience and worldwide operations, which are based upon the firm’s comprehensive technological and scientific knowhow and the good relationships the firm has established with professional peers in leading offices across the world.
The group drafts and submits new patent applications, and manages their prosecution in Israel and even directly in the USA for leading multinational corporations and Fortune 500 companies such as IBM, Samsung, Huawei, Monsanto, Salesforce, Pfizer, Philips, Boeing as well as universities and medical and research institutions in Israel and around the world such as the Technion, Weizmann Institute, Ariel University, Tel Aviv University, Ministry of Agriculture & Rural Development (Volcani Center), Tel Hashomer Hospital, Ichilov Hospital, Hadasit Medical Research Services and Development, Mor Research Applications, Columbia University, universities and research institutes from China and the Philippines, as well as security industries and offices such as Rafael, Elbit Systems, Israel Electric Company, Israel Police and many others.
