Our Practices

We practice intellectual property litigation, patent prosecution, trademark prosecution and advising clients in all areas of IP.

We counsel our clients on a variety of issues, including patent and trademark acquisition, IP portfolio management, licensing strategies, freedom-to-operate and patentability opinions, post-grant proceedings, and more.

Due Diligence Investigations

Whether you are the acquisition target or the buyer in a business transaction involving intellectual property, the attorneys at Christensen Fonder Dardi can perform due-diligence investigations to help you achieve your business goals. Our intellectual attorneys are adept at quickly defining and assessing proprietary rights, technology, and parties—no matter the industry. Our experience includes conducting due diligence investigations of both an offensive nature (purchasing or taking a license) and a defensive nature (selling or granting a license).

Licensing

Christensen Fonder Dardi offers a variety of services to help our clients enhance the value of their intellectual property through the licensing of patents, trademarks, copyrights and trade secrets. Our attorneys can draft, review, and negotiate license agreements and alliances to maximize our clients’ available resources.

Patent Preparation & Prosecution

At Christensen Fonder Dardi, we pride ourselves in working closely not only with our clients’ engineers, scientists, and technology experts, but also with our clients’ business leaders and product managers so that we can build patents that not only capture the technological aspects of an innovation, but also complement our clients’ business models and strategies.

In addition to extensive IP legal experience, every one of our select team of attorneys has years of real-world experience to draw from to help our clients obtain and protect their intellectual property. Many of our attorneys have advanced degrees, and have served as engineers, designers, product managers, and business leaders prior to becoming intellectual property attorneys. This legal, technological, and business experience in combination with our emphasis on superior communication and personal service ensure that Christensen Fonder Dardi will help you efficiently build and grow your patent portfolio, no matter the size.

Intellectual Property Litigation

The skilled lawyers at Christensen Fonder Dardi offer a wealth of experience in the successful management of complex intellectual property litigation. We have resolved disputes involving patents, trademarks, and other forms of intellectual property, in a wide variety of industries. Through our focused approach to resolving contested matters, we have earned a reputation for achieving positive results at the lowest possible cost.

In addition to managing intellectual property litigation, our technology-savvy, USPTO-registered patent attorneys are well-suited to provide pre-litigation analysis and support to allied litigation teams for particularly large or complex matters.

Patent Opinions

As a full-service intellectual property law firm, we frequently help our clients maximize the benefits of their own patent portfolios and navigate the patent portfolios of others, by providing patentabililty, freedom-to-operate, non-infringement, and invalidity opinions.

We understand that no single approach can cover every situation, so we tailor the scope of each opinion to meet the specific needs of each individual client and each particular project. To that end, we can provide opinions of varying length and format—from short memo-style opinions to extensive, exhibit-intensive opinions.

Post Grant Procedures

Our experienced team of USPTO-registered patent attorneys are well qualified to apply their diverse technical and legal skills to successfully manage and resolve the various post-grant proceedings available under the new America Invents Act. Our attorneys will work with you to develop a strategy for accomplishing your offensive or defensive goals, including understanding and selecting one or more of the available options of ex-parte reexamination, inter partes review, post-grant review, covered business method, or supplemental examination.

Trademarks

A key step to building a company’s brand includes selecting and using the right trademark. The attorneys at Christensen Fonder Dardi provide comprehensive legal counseling on selecting, registering and policing trademarks, including product names, company logos, and slogans.

Our attorneys are experienced in assessing trademarks for registrability, and in preparing and prosecuting trademark applications before the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office. If you want to protect your trademark and build your brand outside the U.S., we can coordinate registration of your trademark in virtually any country in the world through our vast network of foreign associate law firms.

Our attorneys are also experienced in enforcement proceedings, including litigation, opposition, and cancellation.
