Made by an industry looking to increase efficiency while decreasing size, semiconductors are tiny in size. But the technology behind them is massive and complex. Our attorneys, who understand the industry because of their experiences as process engineers and designers at major semiconductor companies, bring a level of technical expertise to semiconductor work that is hard to match.
Two Marger Johnson attorneys worked at Texas Instruments as electrical engineers. While there, they both moved to the patent group, one as a patent attorney and one as a patent agent. As a result, they learned first-hand how a large semiconductor company designs and builds semiconductors–and how the related IP is protected. Every member of our semiconductor group is up-to-date on the latest technologies because we frequently handle semiconductor cases for some of the world’s most respected companies, including Intel Corporation and Advanced Power Technology.
Designed for Business
Because of our experiences, we can handle whatever our clients need, from process, circuitry and package work to patents on materials and manufacturing equipment. And our background on the business-side of the industry means that, when we prepare semiconductor patents, we make sure they are both practical and a smart investment.
With litigation in the IP arena increasing, our clients also turn to us to prosecute and defend lawsuits alleging infringement of semiconductor patents. A potentially expensive route, we make sure to keep the bottom-line in mind when setting out litigation tactics. Both in and out of the courtroom, we fashion a strategy to help our clients protect their semiconductor innovations.
