South Florida Patent Law Firm Changing the Norm in Patent Prosecution

FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla., Oct. 13, 2017 /PRNewswire/ — JOHNSON | DALAL, The Intellectual Property Law Firm, PLLC, opened its doors in early 2017 as a full-service intellectual property law firm based in south-Florida and is already changing the way patent applications are examined, generating some astonishing results as it relates to prosecuting patents at the United States Patent and Trademark Office (“USPTO”).

One example of this Broward County-based patent law firm’s spectacular results, is when a utility patent application was filed by the firm on March 15, 2017. This utility application was directed towards a novel weight toning bracelet owned by its client Better Way Inventions, LLC, an innovative south-Florida company creating weighted bracelets for users to tone in a fashionable and effective manner. This patent application was allowed approximately two weeks after filing, and subsequently issued into a patent (U.S. Patent No. 9,707,431) approximately four months after filing. These results are considered to be blazing in the industry considering USPTO records show that this art unit typically takes 15 months from application filing just to issue a first action on the merits, and because it typically takes 2 years or more until a patent issues from a patent application. 

The law firm’s managing partner, Mark Johnson Esq., is a mechanical engineer, a registered patent attorney, and is a Florida Board Certified Expert in Intellectual Property Law. Mr. Johnson credits the Firm’s success in obtaining such results to hard work and close attention to detail, which includes regularly conducting examiner interviews in the patent applications the Firm prosecutes and advising its clients on placing applications on a prioritized examination track. In fact, Mr. Johnson states, “Where possible, it is our Firm’s policy to speak with the examiner on every application we prosecute, as it generally leads to a more effective understanding of the invention by the Patent Office and its potential patentability over the prior art. To that end, I’m always surprised when I do not see examiner interviews conducted in a patent application by other patent law firms, which unfortunately to the client, happens more than one might think.”

Not only do these quickly issued patents tend to lead to faster commercial exploitation for the clients of Johnson | Dalal, but they also lead to creating faster rights for the Firm’s clients to enforce says, Abdul-Sumi Dalal Esq., the Firm’s co-chair of intellectual property litigation. Specifically, Mr. Dalal states that “This Firm’s swift prosecution of patent applications is vital to enforcement of our clients’ rights as patent owners. Because we help our clients receive patents for inventions that we are intimately familiar with, enforcement generally becomes a more expedited and likely fruitful endeavor.”
