Enhancement and Capitalization
Yudell Isidore partners work closely with clients, developing a keen understanding of their business. Utilizing this knowledge, our lawyers develop a patent strategy tailored to the client’s business objectives. Based upon this strategy, our attorneys provide counsel regarding acquisition, use and maintenance of patent assets.
For example, our patent attorneys can assist in portfolio management by performing periodic audits to provide a cost/benefit analysis of maintaining each patent asset.

Yudell Isidore’s patent attorneys also provide due diligence, including full title searches, to support acquisition and divestiture of companies and patent assets. Our attorney’s record security interests in patent assets and, through the firm’s perpetual docketing system, ensure that underlying patent assets are maintained for the life of the security interest. Our attorneys assist financial experts in developing detailed models for evaluating patent assets for risk management, collateral, gift evaluation, acquisition and divestiture, and initial public offerings.

Yudell Isidore’s attorneys collaborate to enforce our clients’ patent rights through negotiation, mediation, arbitration or litigation. We provide assessments of our clients’ patent assets, as well as third party patent assets, by performing validity and infringement analyses and constructing damage models.

Our attorneys perform clearance searches to assess the risk of adopting marks, and prepare and prosecute applications for marks before the United States Trademark Office.
