Affordable San Jose Patent Attorney - Maiorana, P.C.


Maiorana, P.C. is a small yet efficient patent law firm specializing in patent prosecution. While a large majority of our work focuses on computer and semiconductor patent applications for silicon valley based companies. Our Patent Lawyers also cater to the needs of solo inventors by being more personable and easy to relate to. Since we are a small firm and have minimal administrative overhead, we can quickly respond to the needs and concerns of our clients.

Our Patent Lawyers have provided superb patent legal services since 1998. To provide even greater responsiveness to our Silicon Valley and Bay Area clients, the firm has added a San Jose office. We chose San Jose as the location for our second office because of the large number of clients located in our near San Jose who we believe can benefit greatly from our services. According to Crunchbase there are more than 1800 companies in San Jose including many established technology companies and many exciting new ventures. We look forward to enabling the continued success of such established companies and to charting new successes for many exciting new ventures. Please read the rest of this note and consider how we can best serve your needs.

Our vast experience in acquiring more than 1,700 issued US patents for our clients demonstrates the tenacity of our patent attorneys as they fight to protect the rights that our clients deserve for their remarkable innovations. Our patent licensing and corporate counsel experience compliments our patent preparation and prosecution expertise to enable our clients to look beyond narrow embodiments and thereby obtain valuable rights to exclude others from practicing inventions that are important to our clients and the prosperity of their businesses. Our Michigan patent attorneys have decades of preparation and prosecution experience representing clients in Silicon Valley and perform most of this work. Such experience enables our patent attorneys to conduct prosecution very efficiently.

We have observed that many other patent attorneys often continue to argue against relatively strong PTO rejections where such arguments result in expensive continuation applications and other unwarranted prosecution expenses. Fortunately for our clients, our patent attorneys have vast experience with many PTO art units enabling our patent attorneys to conduct effective examiner interviews and move patent applications to claim allowance much more expeditiously than other patent practitioners. This efficient prosecution combined with lower expenses in Michigan often result in remarkably more affordable legal and PTO fees compared to other firms. Our patent attorneys have also worked with many clients with technology roadmaps that benefit from a robust continuation practice - providing us with a deep understanding of the issues requiring greatest attention for such filings.

Our San Jose office ensures that our clients will be able to timely schedule in-person meetings with our patent attorneys related to: invention disclosure evaluations, inventor compensation programs, brainstorming sessions, patent application preparation (both provisional and non-provisional), foreign filing determinations, licensing opportunities and strategies, opinion letters (invalidity and non-infringement), patent prosecution, patent litigation support and many other intellectual property issues related to patents, trademarks, copyrights, trade secrets, joint development, mergers and acquisitions due diligence, and contractual matters - including indemnification obligations, licensing rights, and confidentiality obligations.

Please take some time to explore our website and then consider whether our firm can provide you with services that will more effectively enable your company to robustly protect its precious intangible assets. Please contact us at your earliest convenience so we can explore the intellectual property protection efforts you consider most important for the continued and increasing success of your company.
