Patent Infringement Opinions
If your business has been accused of patent infringement, has received a “cease & desist” letter, or has been more cordially invited to pay a licensing fee on patented technology, it is a good idea to promptly secure a patent infringement opinion from experienced patent counsel.
A competent patent infringement opinion is the cornerstone of formulating a strategy for dealing with patent threats. The reality is, not all patents are created equal. Some patents are very narrow, whereas some are very broad–and it is important to know the difference when negotiating licenses, responding to a lawsuit, enforcing patents, or designing products that will avoid infringement. On the flip side, a patent plaintiff must equally consider the strengths and weaknesses of the patent(s) to be enforced and the only way to do that is by securing good legal opinions.
In addition to helping to formulate a strategy to assert or defend infringement allegations, a competent patent infringement opinion that considers current law and facts can help to avoid enhanced damages awards in litigation.

I spoke with John and two of his attorneys about a the potential for patenting a bicycle braking apparatus. He was very knowledgeable and generous with his and his teams time. It turned out that the apparatus was not patentable but had it been we would have strongly considered Buche & Associates.MB S3/07/2014
