Bradley Taub



Bradley provides multi-layered IP protection to large companies and startups by strategically building comprehensive global IP portfolios that protect products and methods using utility patents, design patents and trademarks. He also handles patent litigation, licensing and general counseling on IP matters.

What do you focus on?

My practice focuses on helping clients obtain and enforce patent and trademark portfolios.

Patent Prosecution

My patent prosecution practice involves building and expanding global patent portfolios. I leverage a global network of foreign associates that provides clients with a seamless and efficient global IP prosecution experience. I lead productive patent mining brainstorming sessions with clients and inventors that result in comprehensive and expanded patent filings that enhance the value of their portfolios. My practice covers a wide variety of technologies, including medical devices, software, wearable technology, beverage mixing systems, dental implant systems, energy generation and storage systems, toys and business methods, among others.

I have written and prosecuted many patent applications through issuance. I have also conducted hundreds of formal and informal interviews with examinees to efficiently reach agreements leading toward swift allowances of patents, avoiding time-consuming appeals, keeping the prosecution record clean and reducing costs.

Litigation

My litigation experience includes winning a high-stakes patent arbitration, drafting complaints, motions and supporting memoranda in Illinois state and federal courts; conducting discovery in Illinois state and federal cases; and successfully arguing an opposition to a motion to dismiss in Illinois state court. I have been instrumental in achieving beneficial settlements for several clients.

What do you see on the horizon?

I believe there will be an uptick in granted software patents in the wake of the updated USPTO guidance on patent eligibility.
