Improving Efficiency, Reducing Costs for Asia-based Client

Patterson + Sheridan manages the patent prosecution process for one of the world’s top 10 U.S. patent issuers. While other law firms might be deterred by language barriers and travel costs, we meet in person with the client on a monthly basis, traveling to Asia regularly to review the inventions covered in their patent filings.

By patiently listening to their input and making strategic use of diagrams, we’ve been able to overcome the language barrier and greatly improve the quality of our client’s U.S. patent filings while at the same time significantly reducing costs. Working directly with the client has also helped us better understand their business and objectives – a critical component for effective representation. 

Our frequent visits and in-person communication have helped us develop closer business and personal relationships with this global technology leader, creating a mutually beneficial model that helps Patterson & Sheridan provide meaningful service to all our international clients.
