We provide a full array of legal services to companies in the chemical and energy fields. Our background and expertise in chemical and energy technologies allows us to better understand issues specific to these fields, particularly with respect to intellectual property matters. For example, we have provided patent prosecution services in petroleum processing, energy production and use (including coal, gas, and nuclear technologies), and environmental technologies (such as vapor phase contaminant removal and soil and water treatment processes). We also have patent prosecution experience in the fields of semiconductor processing, chemical manufacturing technologies, polymers and coatings, pharmaceuticals, and new compositions of matter and have litigated patent infringement cases in a number of these fields. In addition, we have developed worldwide patent filing and claim strategies and provided patent opinion services for our clients in these fields.
Using our technical background and experience, we provide intellectual property services to companies developing green or clean technologies. We have provided patent prosecution services to a number of alternative energy companies, including biofuel companies. In addition, we have provided prior art search and patent prosecution services to companies developing technologies for removing pollutants from industrial gas streams, waste water streams, and landfills and for land reclamation. In addition, we provide our full range of legal services to companies in the green technologies industry, including patent opinions, trademark services, business contract services, and representation in business disputes and litigation.
Owens Tarabichi provides intellectual property and related business contract services to life science and biotechnology companies. We provide counseling regarding patent filing and claim strategies, as well as prosecution services. For example, we have provided patent prosecution services for companies developing technologies such as microfluidic chips and pharmaceuticals, as well as trademark services, such as crafting drug branding strategies. In addition, we have negotiated and drafted various types of biotechnology agreements, including material transfer, clinical trial, and joint research agreements. In addition, we provide our full range of legal services to companies in the life sciences industry, including patent opinions, trademark services, business contract services, and representation in business disputes and litigation.
Owens Tarabichi provides its full range of legal services to technology companies with mechanical-based or electrical-based technologies. From simple to complex mechanical or electrical inventions, we are able to provide our full range of patent law services. We have developed intellectual property licensing strategies for companies with technology in these fields and have negotiated and drafted many intellectual property agreements relating to these technologies. In addition, we provide our full range of legal services to companies with mechanical-based or electrical-based technologies, including patent opinions, trademark services, business contract services, and representation in business disputes and litigation.
We provide a wide array of services to companies in the software and information technology fields, including confidentiality and software development agreements, copyright counseling and registration, due diligence, infringement analyses, open source counseling, patent procurement, software licensing, and trade secret counseling. Unfortunately, for many software companies, intellectual property strategy and protection is an after-thought. The proper strategy and method of protection depends on the company—is the software company a developer of code, an OEM, a consultant, or end user? Depending on the needs of our clients, our understanding of the many issues surrounding the development and use of software allows us to provide a complete legal strategy that meets our clients’ desired business goal.
We have represented many start-up companies and understand their legal needs, particularly the financial constraints under which such companies typically operate. For most technology start-up companies, early attention to the development of intellectual property protection strategies can be vital to securing funding and the overall success of the company. Such strategies should address not only patent filing and claim strategies when appropriate but also the trade-offs between patent and trade secret protection. Trademark filing strategies must also be considered, particularly before adopting a branding strategy. In addition, start-up companies typically have a need for ordinary business contracts, including employment agreements, ordinary purchase agreements, as well as other contracts typically encountered in the early stages of a company, such as confidentiality, license, and joint development agreements.
As a small firm that provides a full range of intellectual property and related business contract legal services, we are well suited to meet the legal needs of start-up companies. Our goal is to work closely with the start-up to fully appreciate the company’s business goals and provide legal services commensurate with those goals.
