Intellectual Property Policy
Porzio is well positioned to assist clients with public policy issues involving intellectual property rights. Attorneys from its Washington office have been deeply engaged in issues relating to patent reform legislation being debated in Congress and state legislatures. In regular contact with the PTO, our practitioners closely monitor and advise on changes to rules and procedures. We also counsel IP clients on how actions taken by other agencies, such as the Federal Trade Commission and Food and Drug Administration, can impact their business. Importantly, Porzio knows how, when necessary, to bring multiple skill sets to the table to negotiate and resolve disputes, whether they are between companies, or companies and the government.
