About Us

About Grüneberg and Myers


Robust patent strategy from focused, experienced attorneys

Patent law is an ever-changing field. New legal developments about patentability, new procedural developments at the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office and in U.S. courts, and new economic and business considerations continually threaten the status quo. Patent applicants, patent owners, and other participants in industry should seek patent lawyers that will attend to their evolving needs.

At Grüneberg and Myers, we feel these concerns. That's why we have assembled a team of experienced professionals within a nimbly-built law firm.

Each of our professionals has been prosecuting patent applications before the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office for years or even decades. Our team members also variously have backgrounds that include litigation, post-grant proceedings, mergers & acquisitions, freedom-to-operate opinions, and counseling. To apply this expertise in a context that best serves our clients, we have prepared our practice to operate as efficiently as possible, minimizing internal bureaucracy and expenses. This approach frees us from worrying about intra-firm matters and major ongoing obligations, to give our full attention to our clients' questions and problems. For each application and each opinion, we can take the time to fully dive into the technology and the legal concerns, in order to advise clients on the highest levels. Our economical underpinnings also enable us to provide reasonable and competitive pricing.
