Among the Beverly Hills, Silicon Valley, and Newport Beach law firms that do patent work, Patent Ingenuity stands out for its Enterprise Patent Framework. Developed specifically for enterprise clients, our Enterprise Patent Framework is used to help an Enterprise client build, and develop, an existing patent portfolio.

Invention Harvesting

At the outset, a professional works with the Enterprise clientto proactively identify inventions that would provide a real value-add to an existing patent portfolio

Patent Protection Strategy

The professional interacts with the Enterprise client to determine which features of the harvested inventions should be emphasized when applying for a patent

Monitoring for Improvements

The professional maintains dialogue, after filing a patent application, with the Enterprise client to monitor for improvements -- for which additional filings may be necessary

Evolutionary Model

In essence, Patent Ingenuity is a patent law firm that uses an evolutionary model when working with enterprise clients; the thinking behind such model is that patent protection should not automatically start and stop with one idea because that idea may be just the proverbial “tip of the iceberg” for even bigger and better ideas.

Technology Leads With The Most Patents Granted

Of the three types of patents — utility, design, and plant — utility patents relate specifically to inventions and innovations. These can include improvements to existing processes, products, and materials. Naturally, industries with a higher pace of innovation -- such as technology and telecommunications -- tend to file more patent applications. 2017 was a record year for utility patents granted by the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO). In 2017, the USPTO granted companies more than 320,000 patents. 2018 was another patent-rich year, with 308,853 patents issued. Fifty companies alone — including America’s most recognizable tech companies — accounted for about 30% of patents granted in 2017. Patents for enterprises are not just a formality; strong, well-written patents provide a key competitive advantage, allowing patent-holders to retain their lead in the marketplace.

Enterprise Patents Are An Asset

In addition to offering intellectual property protection, patents are an asset on an enterprise’s balance sheet. Some of the more famous patents, are said to be worth millions of dollars. Whether your firm’s patent portfolio is worth hundreds, thousands, or millions today, its value may increase over time. As such, protecting your company’s patent -- as you would any other asset -- is critical.

Patent Wording Matters

Many software engineers often have the impression that the technological uniqueness of their inventions is the only thing that matters for obtaining a software patent; that is understandable given the hard work they had to put into their innovations. But if their innovations are not sufficiently explained in a way which comports with the recent patent eligibility requirements, they may possibly not be granted patents.
Patent Ingenuity continues to evolve with the rapid changes in the software technology space. By being aware of newer technologies, the firm strives to continue its approach of communicating – in an engineering way -- with its clients’ engineers.
