Industrial Devices


A multidisciplinary team to handle multifaceted technologies

Successful innovation is never static. In order to remain competitive in a global economy, industrial device developers must continually invent new products and improve on current ones. As your product changes, so should your IP strategy to optimize results.

Clark+Elbing can help you navigate the IP landscape and identify potential issues and opportunities. Because the industrial device sector is rarely confined to a single discipline, we assemble a multidisciplinary legal team with the right technical background and legal skills to handle your specific innovation. This approach offers the perspective needed to advance multifaceted technologies through sophisticated patent counseling, prosecution, protection, and monetization strategies.

  • Domestic and foreign patent prosecution
