Mechanical technologies contribute to virtually every aspect of life. Drugs need pumps to infuse them, cars have engines to propel them, and consumer products require manufacturing systems to make and package them. Our firm’s roots are grounded in mechanical technologies. Many of our mechanical attorneys also have worked for high technology companies, allowing us to efficiently understand a broad array of problems and solutions in the mechanical arts. We build defensible patent portfolios, assess the risk of competitive patents, and provide counsel on acquiring technology in a wide spectrum of mechanical technologies, including heavy machinery and manufacturing equipment, medical devices, packaging, automotive, sporting goods, building materials, and aircraft and rocket propulsion.
