National Law Journal Article Posted
If you haven't seen it already, I recently had an article published by the National Law Journal. The article is titled "Technology claims face high level of scrutiny". If you have a subscription to law.com, please check it out.
Leigh J. Martinson is a registered patent attorney.
Leigh focuses his practice on strategic patent portfolio management and complex patent litigation in the areas of analog circuitry, digital circuitry, computer hardware, software, optics, medical devices, RFID technologies, packet and circuit telecommunications, wireless communications, business methods and internet technologies.
One key component to a company's IP strategy is patent acquisition. The last stop for an application is often the BPAI. I believe that identifying trends within the Board can be helpful to increase your success rate on Appeal.
