Prior Art Searching
CGO attorneys are skilled prior art searchers. Prior art includes any evidence that an invention is already known, such as patents, previously filed patent applications, research papers, and published articles. An effective prior art search gives you a preview of what obstacles may be in the way of getting a patent. If you are faced with a competitor’s patent, we can help by finding prior art that will allow you to invalidate that patent or effectively design around it so you can proceed with your plans.
