Intellectual Property

Starboard believes that writing an intellectual property plan is an important part of the product development process. We help our clients understand prior art, identify opportunities for maximum IP protection, and work to prevent competitors from gaining ground. We enhance understanding of concepts, expand embodiments, and broaden claims to strengthen patent applications. Starboard also helps our clients defend claims during legal proceedings.

The IP process is about extracting maximum value from ideas, and we have the technical expertise to help our clients achieve this goal.

IP Capabilities:

  • Innovation and conception
  • Patent application support
  • Prior art searches
  • Development of embodiments
  • Demonstrative simulations
  • Infringement analysis
  • Competitive analysis
  • Trade secret evaluation
