About Gard & Kaslow LLP

We formed Gard & Kaslow LLP expressly to do patents right. Patents are all we do, and with our years of experience, we've seen the good and the bad in the patent world. We offer a personal commitment to providing value that is unparalleled in patent work.

What we do

We help organizations, particularly venture-backed companies, develop patent portfolios that provide maximum return on the organizations' investments.

Our decades of experience in the high-tech market and in every aspect of patent law enable us to analyze the work going on in your organization and devise the optimum patent strategy to help you achieve your goals, whether they are maintaining exclusivity in the marketplace, obtaining additional revenue streams via licensing, or partnering with larger companies for business advantage.

We can help determine:

  • What to patent
  • How to patent it
  • How the actions of others might infringe upon your patents
  • How to avoid infringing upon the patents of others
  • What patents to license and how to do so
  • How to develop a patent portfolio that can become a central business asset

And, of course, we can write, file, and prosecute your patent applications with the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office.

How we're different

  • We know patents.
    All we do is patents. We have spent decades focused exclusively on patent law. We know what works and what doesn't. We have experience in every sort of patent work, including managing patent programs, developing patent portfolios, litigating patent cases, writing patent applications, and getting patents issued.

    Where other firms may understand the basic processes of applying for patents or handling patent litigation, we go further. We can show you how a patent portfolio can become a strategic business asset.

    At Gard & Kaslow LLP, we do more than simply file patent applications. We identify and protect those innovations that are most strategically important for your business.

  • We understand your business.
    We're lawyers, but we're also engineers, scientists, and businesspeople. We have worked for and with every kind of technology company, from start-ups to the Fortune 500. We understand that you have a business to run and that that business is not patents.

    At Gard & Kaslow LLP, we know how to analyze your company, identify what is strategically important to patent, and then, through judicious use of inventors’ time, draft those patents central to your company's business and objectives.

    Where other firms may know the law, we also know the technology and how high-tech companies work.

  • We provide personal attention.
    At Gard & Kaslow LLP, we provide senior-level attention to every matter we handle. Your patent work is not simply delegated to an inexperienced junior associate. An extremely capable patent attorney is keeping an eye on your issues every step of the way.
