The respected patent attorneys at Lomnitzer Law have the right mix of legal knowledge, experience, and business sense to take on the most complex patent disputes. Over the years, our Boca Raton patent litigation lawyers have represented South Florida patent seekers, patent holders, and those accused of violating patents in patent litigation across the country. Working on both sides of these disputes has given us the experience to develop winning strategies for our clients. 

Securing a Patent 

At Lomnitzer Law, we know how to secure a patent as quickly as possible, and have experience advocating for approval if a patent application is initially rejected.

Our team helps South Florida inventors, creators, and business owners, determine which type of patent is right for them, and guides them through the patent application process. 

  • Utility patents, which are by far the most common form of patents, are issued for the invention of a new and useful product, or new and useful improvement thereof.
  • Design patents protect the specific appearance and features of a product.
  • Plant patents permit their owners to exclude others from making, using, or selling a reproduced plant.
  • Provisional patent is a placeholder with a low filing fee that establishes a filing date for an invention but will not result in a patent on its own. Once a provisional patent application is filed, the applicant then has up to one year to decide whether to proceed with converting it into a utility patent.

When an application is rejected or challenged, we step in and advocate on our clients’ behalf at the United States Patent and Trademark Office’s (USPTO) Patent Trial and Appeal Board (PTAB).

Patent Litigation Disputes Are Business Issues

Whether you are still at the whiteboard or already dominate the market, getting into a patent dispute with another creator can quickly derail your business plans. The attorneys at Lomnitzer Law understand this, which is why we are South Florida’s premier intellectual property law practice

The Boca Raton patent litigation attorneys on our team have backgrounds in a number of different industries. We apply their first-hand knowledge to craft unique solutions for clients in the entertainment, consumer products, and technology industries.

Because the business impacts of a patent case are so important, “winning” the case can mean something different than it might in other legal contexts. For example, it might be more important to craft a solution that allows both parties in a patent lawsuit to move forward than it is to split hairs over which design characteristics distinguish one patent from another. At Lomnitzer Law, we work with our clients to figure out what winning means to them, then craft a plan to get to that point. 

Patent Protection Boca Raton

When someone violates a patent owner’s exclusive right to use or sell a product, the Lomnitzer Law Firm can help the patent holder take legal action. While we do our best to resolve and avoid disputes before they wind up in court, when litigation is necessary, our lawyers aggressively advocate on behalf of our clients and we are always ready to go to trial. 

When patent cases go to trial they are often tried before a jury. This is where the Lomnitzer Law team shines. Our attorneys excel at translating highly complex concepts into simple ideas that jurors without a technical background can easily digest. We know how to present a compelling argument that tells our client’s story to the judge and jury and persuades them of the merits of our client’s case. 

At the heart of these disputes are genuine disagreements over invention and inspiration. It is an honor to work on these cases, which often explore what it means to be a creator in the modern economy. 

Defending Alleged Infringers 

The Lomnitzer Law team also devotes a significant amount of our practice to defending those accused of patent infringement. Our clients in these cases are not fly-by-night operators looking to steal business away from legitimate creators. Our clients are creators and business owners themselves who are under attack, and fear for their reputations and their livelihoods. The Lomnitzer Law team defends our clients against patent infringement actions, while  using our experience to invalidate competitors’ patents, prove non-infringement,  or negotiate a favorable settlement.

We Are Patent Litigation Problem Solvers 

At Lomnitzer Law Firm, P.A. we take a problem-solving approach to the law. We understand the litigation is a means to an end and not the end goal, but we are always ready to go to trial. Our clients need to be able to create, build, and market their ideas and products, not spend their time navigating legal disputes. Our clients in Boca Raton and across the country can trust our patent litigators to resolve their cases as quickly and efficiently as possible so they can move forward. 

This, however, does not mean that we push our clients to adopt arguments or legal tactics they are uncomfortable with. Our clients are always the ones calling the shots. We evaluate and advise, then let our clients pick a path forward. We respect the creativity and business acumen that got our clients where they are today, and we are here to protect and defend.
