Patent Attorney - Palo Alto

Christopher P. Maiorana, P.C. has provided world-class patent legal services to its clients since 1998. Many of our clients are key technology contributors for the computer, software and semiconductor markets for Silicon Valley based companies. To provide even greater responsiveness for our Palo Alto, Silicon Valley and California clients we recently added a San Jose office. Palo Alto has been an especially fertile location for innovation which is no surprise given that Palo Alto has the highest concentration of residents having Master’s or Doctorate degrees (40.2%) according to

One of the motivations for opening our San Jose office is the increasing number of our clients who are located in or near San Jose. According to Crunchbase there are more than 1800 companies in Palo Alto including Hewlett-Packard, VMware, Tesla, SurveyMonkey, Cloudera, Palantir Technologies, Skype, IDEO, Medallia, and Jazz Pharmaceuticals. We look forward to collaborating with such innovative companies to help them thrive through acquisition and use of exclusive patent rights. Please read the rest of this note and consider how we can best serve your needs.

The patent attorneys at Maiorana P.C. have acquired more than 1,700 issued US patents for our clients, demonstrating the tenacity of our experience. We fight to protect the rights for clients’ market perturbing innovations. Our patent prosecution expertise together with our patent licensing and corporate counsel experience enables us to work with our clients to look beyond protection of narrow invention embodiments and acquire rights to exclude others from practicing inventions that are important to protect our clients’ key market and technology objectives. Maiorana P.C. provides exceptional value through affordable strategic guidance aligned with our clients’ dynamic needs in response to an ever-changing competitive landscape. We will now be able to readily conduct in-person meetings in our new San Jose office with our clients to discuss: invention disclosure evaluations, freedom to operate prior art searches, brainstorming sessions, patent application preparation (both provisional and non-provisional), patent prosecution, licensing opportunities and strategies, patent opinion letters (invalidity and non-infringement), patent litigation support, foreign filing determinations, and many other intellectual property issues related to patents, trade secrets, mergers and acquisitions due diligence, trademarks, copyrights, joint development, and contractual matters - including licensing rights, indemnification obligations, and confidentiality obligations.
