Portland, OR –

The high stakes of patent appeals at the United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) are handled by firms with advanced skill and significant experience in this very specialized practice area.  The USPTO’s most recently published data shows that only 38% of appeals have some positive outcome for the applicant.

McCoy Russell boasts a national appeal practice with significant experience and expertise in handling appeals at the USPTO.  McCoy Russell’s patent prosecution team has achieved a positive outcome in nearly 80% of cases so far in 2018 and uses appeals as part of an overall portfolio management strategy.  McCoy Russell also coordinates foreign appeals as part of its approach, including strategic use of reexamination appeals at the China Intellectual Property Office, having won 8 appeals so far in 2018.



McCoy Russell LLP is a nationally ranked boutique, woman-owned, intellectual property law firm headquartered in Portland, Oregon and focused on the prosecution and development of patent and trademark portfolios.
