Patent Enforcement

Patent Enforcement

Schwartz Law Firm, P.C. regularly represents and counsels corporations, business owners, entrepreneurs, and inventors in matters relating to enforcement of patent rights in the United States.

Someone is said to be "infringing" on claims of a patent when they, import, make, use, offer to sell, or sell the patented invention, as defined by the claims within the United States before the term of the patent expires without permission from the patent owner. A patent owner who believes someone is infringing on the exclusive rights of the patent may bring a lawsuit to stop the alleged infringing acts and recover damages, which generally is money paid, by the infringer to the patent owner to compensate for the harm caused by the infringement. The patent owner must prove infringement of the claims of the patent. The patent owner must also prove the need for damages.

Schwartz Law Firm is based in Charlotte, North Carolina with clients throughout the United States and internationally. Its founder and owner, Jeff Schwartz, has prepared, filed, and prosecuted more than 500 patent applications in a broad range of technologies including Internet applications, computer software, medical devices and processes, mechanical devices, and innovative business methods. Jeff is a registered patent attorney, and has been selected by his peers as one of North Carolina's leading intellectual property lawyers, according to separate surveys taken by Law & Politics and Business North Carolina magazine.
