Maiorana, P.C.

Registered Patent Attorneys

Patent Attorney - San Francisco

Christopher P. Maiorana, P.C. continues to provide world-class patent legal services to its clients, as it has since 1998. Many of our clients are key technology contributors for the computer, software and semiconductor markets for Northern California companies. To provide even greater responsiveness for our Northern California, San Francisco, and Silicon Valley clients we added an office in San Jose, CA during the month of May of this year. Because the San Francisco-Oakland region rates as the 8th most innovative region in the US according to Business Insider, patent activity in this region is especially strong. Therefore, one of the motivations for opening our Northern California office is the increasing number of our clients who are located in or near San Francisco. According to Crunchbase, there are more than 10,000 companies in San Francisco including Twitter, Uber, Dropbox, Salesforce, Airbnb, Pinterest, Lyft, Fitbit, Visa, Craigslist, Bit Torrent, Twilio, Splunk, Coinbase, StubHub, Trulia, reddit, McKesson, DoorDash, Kiva, MuleSoft, Yelp, Zynga, and DocuSign. We look forward to enabling such innovative companies to thrive through acquisition and use of exclusive patent rights. Please consider how we can best serve your needs.

Maiorana P.C. has acquired more than 1,700 issued US patents for our clients. Our attorneys have the experience and tenacity to fight to protect your rights for your key innovations. Our patent licensing and corporate counsel experience together with our patent prosecution expertise enables us to acquire rights with sufficient breadth to exclude others from practicing inventions and thereby protect our clients’ key market and technology objectives. Maiorana P.C. provides exceptional value through affordable guidance aligned with our clients’ dynamic needs that address ever-changing competitive landscapes. We will now be able to readily conduct in-person meetings in our Northern California office with our clients to discuss: patent application preparation (both provisional and non-provisional), patent prosecution, contractual matters - including licensing rights, indemnification obligations, and confidentiality obligations, invention disclosure evaluations, freedom to operate prior art searches, brainstorming sessions, licensing opportunities and strategies, patent opinion letters (invalidity and non-infringement), patent litigation support, and many other intellectual property issues related to patents, mergers and acquisitions due diligence, trade secrets, trademarks, and copyrights.
