Commitment to Our Clients

We understand that phrases like “highest quality,” “focus on our clients,” or “excellent service” have become white noise in the market. Our goal is to show, not tell, our commitment to clients.

Schwegman deals with the issues that most directly affect the prosecution of our clients’ valued intellectual property. Our attorneys are experts in patent prosecution, counseling and opinion work. Clients can count on them to act in their best interest as they apply their skill and experience on their behalf.

We believe there are three clearly identifiable outcomes that characterize a successful representation:

  • First, patents issued will provide commercially viable protection and will be attractive to potential partners or licensees.
  • Second, patents protecting inventions by you and your engineers or scientists will effectively deter potential infringers and withstand validity challenges in court.
  • Third, our opinion practice will achieve resolution of adversarial situations, often with licensing as a result, and will avoid expensive, time-consuming litigation.

Everyone at Schwegman makes it a priority to focus first on the needs of our client, putting their welfare ahead of the firm’s own gain. In fact, this founding principle of Schwegman is the primary reason the firm has always refrained from active trial work. Schwegman refuses to shortchange its clients, as may happen in conventional IP law practice where litigation is often the key focus.

At Schwegman, paralegals and case management staff are not assigned to attorneys; they are assigned directly to our clients. This way, they will know our client’s needs and respond to them with a sense of ownership. Support staff is thoroughly trained on compliance with PTO rules and procedures. If you elect to partner with Schwegman, you would be assigned a case-management assistant, a U.S. paralegal, and a foreign-filing paralegal, if needed, to efficiently and expertly assist the attorneys in building and caring for your patent portfolio.
