THE IP LAW FIRM MODEL
WHAT WE DO
Invoke delivers unprecedented power.
Invoke recognizes that patent claims define the strength of any asserted patent, and thus, also define the value delivered to our clients. Based on this simple understanding we ask inventors to focus specifically on the patent claims as the most important piece of the patent appication while traditional law firms ask inventors to ignore the patent claims as "legalese".
We take the time to explain claim structure and claim drafting to all inventors. Our claim specialists draft claims clearly and precisely such that inventors can review and verify that the crux of their invention(s) is properly captured in the broadest possible way. We also step through each and every dependent claim with the inventors to ensure that all key back-up positions are properly covered.
The Invoke two chair model (described on the "About Us" page) is designed to obtain review and approval on a complete claim set by both in-house patent counsel and inventors before we begin drafting the patent applciation. This allows us to not only focus the patent application correctly but also explore the depths of each independent and dependent claim element. In contrast, traditional law firm practice involves filling a patent application with long generic "technical-sounding" descriptions of known technologies.
