Success + Clients

Note: Case results depend on a variety of unique factors and do not guarantee or predict similar results in the future. Results include previous experience of FH+H attorneys.

  • After eight years at the USPTO, key patent applications handled by another well-known firm were transferred to our patent attorneys. In little over a year, we succeeded in obtaining allowance of strong patent claim sets, providing cornerstone patents for the client's patent licensing campaign and ultimately resulting in sale of the client's patent portfolio for over $80 million.
  • Patent mining of third-party patents resulted in identifying valuable patents relevant to a competitor's products, resulting in a stronger position for our client during a cross-license negotiation.
  • Assisted a tech start-up in preparing and conducting cross-license negotiations with a major US semiconductor company, including patent portfolio development, infringement and invalidity analysis, claim charting infringement of the client's patents - which were reverse-engineered products of the competitor -, and negotiations for cross licensing of patents.
