Litigation News

Rick defends small software firm from public firm. Click Here

This economy has caused an increase in litigation. The firm has just settled a trademark lawsuit. The firm defended two software companies from patent infringement lawsuits brought in Texas. See a Markman claims brief here.

Rick’s extensive patent prosecution work since 1985 allows him to thoroughly examine a litigant’s pre-issue and post issue statements which can narrow claims considerably under the doctrine of file wrapper estoppel. The firm does some patent contingent lawsuits.

The firm has the in-house resource of Rob Birt to produce economical trial audio visual aids.

Rob offers 15 years experience in the field of Visual Communications and Design, including projects in video, web design, print, illustration, logo design, branding, corporate identity, brochures, marketing materials, industrial design, and patent drawings. Rob does patent drawings and offers other creative development projects such as corporate artistic logos to encompass the visual look and appeal of your startup company.

Having this creative source available at our offices may help your project reach its maximum potential when it hits the market. The consistency of your brand and identity is an integral part of your invention’s launch to the public. To see creative work samples from Rob Birt, go to www.robbirt.com
