Osha Bergman Watanabe & Burton’s patent prosecution professionals draft, prosecute, and obtain patent claims that achieve our clients’ business objectives. We write patent specifications that support the broadest scope of coverage and include fallback positions to deal with unknown and unexpected prior art. Patents prepared and prosecuted by Osha Bergman Watanabe & Burton (OBWB) meet the requirements of all jurisdictions in which the client operates, and are written and prosecuted keeping the possibility of judicial enforcement or post-grant proceedings in mind.
Our patent prosecutors are experienced engineers and scientists in a wide variety of technologies, and have degrees in scientific and engineering fields including electrical engineering, mechanical engineering, chemical engineering, material science, chemistry, physics, neuroscience, genetics, biology, cell and molecular biology, food science and biotechnology, pharmaceutical sciences, imaging technologies, and computer science. OBWB patent professionals understand the clients’ businesses as well as the timeliness and quality requirements necessary to satisfy even the most demanding patent portfolio management needs.
Through our offices in the United States, China, France, and Japan, Osha Liang has filed, or coordinated and managed the filing of, patent applications in nearly every technical and scientific discipline in almost every industrialized country in the world.
