Whatever your needs, you are best served by someone who deals directly and personally with you and has a laser-like focus on the areas of patents, trademarks and copyrights.

PATENT LAWYERS WITH RELEVANT EXPERIENCE

Intellectual property law firms like to tout their ability to understand your technology or “get up to speed.” As former professional engineers with over 10 years combined experience building and maintaining systems, we are already “up to speed.” We understand how software and web-based businesses develop intellectual property and operate their business. Our approach is informed by an overall understanding of how technology is developed and how patent and trademark laws can best be used to achieve a competitive advantage in the market. Go ahead and speak “geek” to us.

You’ll often hear patent law firms say they “know their way around” the U.S. Patent Office. Mark Terry’s former office was the Patent Office. As a former software engineer and former U.S. Patent Examiner that examined hundreds of patent applications, Mark Terry graduated from U.S. Patent Academy and worked in opposition to patent attorneys just like us. Now that Mr. Terry is on the other side, we have a unique insight into the workings of the Patent Office, which helps when we prosecute our clients’ patent applications. And yes, we “know my way around” the U.S. Patent Office rather well.

In 2007, Mr. Terry was in the first group of Florida Bar lawyers to be afforded Board Certified status in the area of Intellectual Property Law. Board certification is the highest level of recognition offered by the Florida Bar in certain areas of law. As a Board Certified Specialist, Mr. Terry is uniquely suited to provide you with counseling on patent law, trademark law and copyright law. Mr. Terry also served as a member of the Florida Bar Intellectual Property Certification Committee, which is the body charged with vetting applicants for board certification, as well as preparing the exam taken by its applicants.
