The scope of MFB’s services includes the ability to craft unique solutions for all types of entities – from early stage businesses and entrepreneurs to large public companies. We develop customized patent programs that effectively support our clients’ business objectives, and actively coach and educate them during the patent process so that they gain understanding and get the best return on their intellectual property investment.

Global Reach

In addition to domestic representation, we work closely with a trusted worldwide network of firms to obtain global patent protection on behalf of our clients.

We have intentionally avoided developing a litigation practice to focus on patent prosecution and limit potential conflicts of interest. When necessary, we match clients with litigation counsel as appropriate for particular matters. In addition to domestic representation, we work closely with a trusted worldwide network of firms to obtain global patent protection on behalf of our clients.
