Patents provide exclusivity over the ideas underlying innovation and thus afford the broadest scope of intellectual property protection. The full value of a patent is best achieved by lawyers who not only possess sound legal skills, but also bring high-level technical backgrounds to promptly and accurately discern the ideas underlying each innovation.

Meunier Carlin & Curfman has developed a national reputation in patent protection due to our lawyers’ noteworthy scientific, mechanical, and engineering expertise. Our patent attorneys and agents hold advanced technical degrees and knowledge and have worked as university scientists and researchers, as in-house counsel in the intellectual property departments of major companies, as examiners at the United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO), and as corporate scientists and engineers.

In short, it’s not easy to find this combination of technical and legal talent at one law firm, but it is the standard at MCC.

At MCC, we protect technology and innovation in the broadest possible terms and across a wide array of industries, including software, electrical, information technology, mechanical, biotech, chemical, artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning, and more. We provide a range of services to our clients, including preparing patent applications, filing applications in the US and abroad, monitoring competitor applications and technologies, and handling administrative appeals and petitions.
