Chemistry Patent Attorney

Our knowledge of IP law combined with our scientific expertise allows us to advise clients on all types of chemical patent claims.

Capuano IP’s patent services include freedom to operate, infringement, validity, and patentability opinions.  We also advise clients on patent portfolio due diligence, acquisitions and sales. 

Trade Secret Protection

We advise clients on identifying, managing, and securing their trade secrets and work with them to develop policies for the handling and sharing of confidential information.

Our attorneys work with clients to create non-compete and nondisclosure agreements to prevent trade secret theft by departing employees, strategic partners, licensees, and other corporate insiders. When necessary, we litigate trade secret disputes to enforce or defend against accusations of theft.

IP Enforcement and Defense

Our intellectual property attorneys have extensive experience litigating patent and trade secret disputes in state and federal courts.  In addition, we have a demonstrated track record of success in post-grant proceedings at the United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO), as well as in arbitration and other alternative dispute resolution proceedings. 

We have extensive experience in co-counseling arrangements in patent and trade secret litigation and have served as the “IP Team” on various multi-firm litigation teams.  Whether bringing or defending against a patent infringement claim, Capuano IP provides a valuable combination of technical and intellectual property expertise. 

Licensing and Transfer

For many businesses in the chemical sciences, licensing of technology to third parties can be an important source of revenue. We regularly advise clients on various types of intellectual property licensing and technology agreements, including:

  • Technology transfer agreements
  • Confidentiality agreements
  • Research agreements
  • End-user agreements

We leverage our understanding of intellectual property and scientific expertise to help our clients protect and commercialize their valuable IP assets.
