About the Firm
Roylance, Abrams, Berdo & Goodman, L.L.P. values and places a priority on integrity, developing long-term relationships and providing outstanding service -- three things our clients know and expect from us. And for more than 50 years we've delivered on this commitment.
As IP specialists we concentrate on patent, trademark, litigation, licensing, USPTO proceedings, copyright and Internet and media matters with counseling and opinions at the core of our practice.
Our work before the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) is unparalleled. Many of our attorneys began their careers as patent and trademark examiners and bring this wealth of knowledge and insight to our clients. Our attorneys have authored and prosecuted patents for small companies as well as some of the world's largest companies for technologies that make our every day lives better. From alternative energies to innovations in eye surgery to satellite communications, we are well versed when it comes to protecting and defending our clients' IP assets.
We are also creative and smart. This is represented in our logo, which means different things to different people. Some see energy in motion, others see a fingerprint and some see an ear listening intently. However defined, our logo illustrates our commitment to our clients -- we listen, recognize our clients' individual needs and approach their issues with energy and originality. This approach to client service, combined with our analytical thinking, innovative style and experience is what differentiates us from other firms.
For example -- Roylance, Abrams was the first firm in the nation to file an inter partes reexamination request at the USPTO. The firm succeeded in having all claims of the patent ruled invalid or disclaimed at a cost of about 4% the cost of the average IP litigation, a significant cost savings for our client.
We work in partnership with our worldwide network of IP associates to file and protect patents in foreign countries -- whether in the U.S. or around the world, we keep you protected.
