Our clients range from multinational corporations to domestic institutions to individuals, over a wide range of legal issues and business issues. As a result of our expansive clientele range, our firm specializes in interdisciplinary applications wherein mechanics may be combined with microbiology, chemistry, software and robotics. With regard to our specialization for handling interdisciplinary applications, various medical devices such as analytical devices, therapeutic devices, orthopedic devices, software related thereto, and the methods related thereto all have been subject matter of applications prosecuted by Kohn & Associates. For example, our firm prosecuted patent applications involving technology related to microbiological detection in blood for Difco, Inc., which included various medical devices as well as microbiology and chemistry that was performed and analyzed by the devices. These patents were the basis of the sale of Difco to Becton-Dickinson and Company. We have also prosecuted medical device applications for Whatman, Inc. (Europe and U.S.); Pfizer, Inc. (Europe and U.S.); Henry Ford Health Systems; and Children’s Hospital Boston as well as myriad others. In providing secure patent protection, it is critical that the patent be a meld of intellectual property/legal issues with technical issues that may be quite simple or quite sophisticated. Many intellectual property law firms require technical advisers for their intellectual property attorneys. We do not. Our attorneys have strong technical backgrounds as well as patent backgrounds. Accordingly, the final product, the patent application, is a true synthesis of legal and technical information providing a strongly defensible legal document while also providing a detailed and competent technical document. This approach to interdisciplinary expertise allows clients to work consistently with individual attorneys at Kohn & Associates with regard to a complete patent portfolio.
