Patent Preparation & Prosecution

Turning innovation into industry.

Husch Blackwell counsels companies of all sizes, universities, research facilities and individuals on preparing and obtaining life sciences patents. Early on, our team conducts patentability searches and analyses to ensure that clients make sound decisions on whether they have freedom to operate (FTO) in the selected patent area. In drafting FTO opinions, we address problem results, roadblocks, privilege and confidentiality, and alternative resolutions.

Our team has extensive experience navigating the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) on behalf of clients, including handling appeals before the Patent Trial and Appeal Board (PTAB). Our goal is always the same: to ensure that clients manage risk and monetize their discoveries while advancing the life sciences.
