ELECTRONICS

We represent some of the world’s leading companies in a variety of electronic and engineering fields, ranging from circuit designs, automotive technologies, self-driving systems, drug delivery systems, etc. Having an in-depth understanding of the various technologies of our clients and being able to communicate with inventors on their level, is critical to obtaining the maximum protection of our clients’ assets in such a competitive sector. We recruit the best technical specialists, with a wealth of patent drafting and prosecution experience to complement our clients’ in-house technology teams. We readily adapt our modus operandi to work with inventors, in-house patent counsel, outside patent counsel to maximise the scope of protection for our clients.

Our focus is to add value at each stage of the patent process, from patent drafting through prosecution to grant, and potentially beyond through Oppositions and Appeals. Our continued success in EPO Opposition proceedings means that we are regularly requested to take over new, problematic cases of our clients, when they are faced with contentious proceedings on their most complex patents. We are dedicated to obtain the maximum potential protection for our clients, and we are belligerent in resolving patent disputes with Patent Examiners/Offices, when appropriate. However, we are also renowned and appreciated amongst our clients for straightforward and honest advice on when to save costs and energy, due to an appreciation of the realities of what can be achieved within the limits, budget and established commercial sensitivities across the client’s engineering sector.

Optimus has a range of SME clients in the medical field, operating at the forefront of their respective technologies.

Optimus sets up bespoke patent processes and reports for our clients, in order to guide our clients through the patent maze. Such SME clients rely on Optimus to deliver a World-class service across all aspects of the patent process … and we deliver.

Our SME clients require substantial value from their IP and developing patent portfolio, in order to attract investment, build up value in their business and also enable them to operate in a rapidly changing technology space. Optimus is able to provide our clients with this ‘security’, through our experience and remarkable track record in achieving valuable patent portfolios. This allows our clients to focus on what they do best – engineering and research to extend the boundaries of their technology sphere.

SOFTWARE

Software techniques and software-based technologies appear in the vast majority of technical fields, nowadays. Our Attorney Team’s knowledge of the technical and legal structure governing computer-implemented inventions is excellent. A current major challenge for the Patent Attorney profession is the patenting of software and software processes that are implemented within a processor or computer. The legal framework and case law with regard to obtaining software-based patents, in the US, Europe, the UK and many other jurisdictions, is complex. Patent Offices are continually reluctant to grant patents in this area. However, with carefully crafted patent specifications and thorough and convincing arguments based on current case law and a vast amount of experience, it is possible for Optimus’ first-class Attorney Team to circumvent such problems.
