I'm looking for recommendations for a New York City area attorney who can help me with a consumer product and software patent. Anyone have recommendations of someone they've worked with? Thanks!

My advice to you Robert is to look for a patent attorney who has both prosecuted patents before the USPTO and has litigated patents through a Markman hearing - ideally all the way to a settlement or judgement.

It's not until you have to litigate a patent and go through the claims construction process in court (at least once) that you learn how to better write a claim set and supporting specification and diagrams that make sense to a high school educated jury or to a Judge with a non-technical education.

Good luck!

I am sure you know this already.  It's the same process with finding the right doctor.  Those seeking guidance should meet with several law firms to find the right fit.  And you should not be charged for the initial consultation.  If you are interested in meeting with us, please feel free to drop an email.

Adler Vermilion is excellent and they cater particularly to the startup and VC world. I recently went through a very detailed patent review process with them as it applied to a biotech company. They were thorough, extremely communicative and engage in a timely manner. They also adapt to your situation

Don't limit your search to  NYC. Subject .after expertise and prosecution experience is more important than local.

You should at least talk with Perkins Cole. They are prominent in the NYC area (as well as others) for high tech IP work.  Try reaching out to Sean Grygiel I have known him for more than 10 years and he has been through the tech startup process as a principal.

Talk to Chris Hanba at KL Gates. He is based in Chicago but they have offices everywhere including NYC and Palo Alto. Tell him Tony So sent you, he will take good care of you.

Hi Robert;

I'm a patent attorney with a life sciences background.  My partner is my dad (he has a chemical engineering background).   Obviously neither of these are software, but what we offer is the ability to provide our considerable patent prosecution talent and advocacy expertise and couple it with our contacts in India capable of providing substantive software drafting talent.

All of this we do at cut rates and/or equity fee reduction set-ups.

I'm a recent MBA and I love getting involves with entrepreneur clients.
