US Prosecution

Gottlieb, Rackman & Reisman has a strong patent and trademark prosecution practice supervised or handled by attorneys and staff who are experienced in their respective fields. In advising clients, we take a business-oriented approach to serve them best.

Many of us have advanced degrees in areas including physics, electrical engineering and mechanical engineering, have industry experience, and have decades of experience working on patent prosecution and related matters. We make it our priority to understand what’s important in your business, to understand your competition, and to understand the state of current technology as it relates to your invention and/or business.

We work well with in-house counsel, large companies, small businesses and individual inventors, either remotely and in-person, as needed. Our attorneys have practical experience applying current patent and trademark law to patent and trademark prosecution efforts and have a deep understanding of various businesses and technologies, including biotechnology and pharmaceuticals, digital advertising, fashion, medical devices, robotics, software and electronics, sports and entertainment and telecommunications. We have relationships with numerous foreign associates worldwide and are very experienced in supervising these associates in a myriad of countries and continents when prosecuting foreign counterpart applications.

When beginning the filing and prosecution process, we generally suggest that a thorough search be conducted. A trademark search can help determine whether there might be any conflict with pre-existing trademarks, while a patentability search can find relevant prior art which can affect the patentability of your invention. We provide both domestic and international trademark and patentability searches.
