What is IP?  We must start with a “thank you” to Thomas Jefferson and our other United States founding fathers for acknowledging how important it is to protect our innovation and creativity.  They made sure we had protection for intellectual property by including Article I, Clause 8 in the U.S. Constitution:  Congress shall have the power:  To promote the progress of science and useful arts, by securing for limited times to authors and inventors the exclusive right to their respective writings and discoveries.  From there, we have our patent law and copyright law.  Congress also was given the power to regulate commerce, which leads to our trademark law.

Artistic works, including drawings, paintings, sculpture, music and literature, as well as discoveries, inventions, words, phrases, symbols, and designs, may be eligible as intellectual property that could be protectable in the United States.  Whatever you create, let us help you protect and monetize it.  Ask Pat for more information.

Business Strategy

Your intellectual property – patents, copyrights, trademarks and trade secrets, business methods, software, licenses and advertising campaigns – are strategic business assets.   Let me help you manage these assets to build market share, increase revenue, reduce cost and/or gain access to capital markets.  Intellectual property law is really about business – each client’s business!  Ask Pat for assistance with best practices and strategy to identify, protect, manage and leverage your intellectual property assets.

Licensing

Licensing intellectual property –patents, trademarks, and copyrights –can be a major source of revenue for technology companies and other businesses.  Rogowski Law studies each client’s business, intellectual property, markets, and competition to help develop a solid licensing plan that maximizes royalties far into the future.

I have negotiated and authored license deals for both national and international companies, completed IP due diligence in respect of purchases and sales of intellectual property, and drafted complex litigation settlements in respect of patent, trademark and copyright rights.

Patent Litigation /
Enforcement / Defense

Litigation is expensive. With extensive experience litigating intellectual property cases – including patent infringement, trademark, copyright and other disputes –at trial and appellate levels, I focus on obtaining resolutions on behalf of clients whether by trial or settlement.  Defendant clients often have actions dismissed before trial or at early stages of the proceedings.  

If early resolution is not possible, I will bring together resources for effective representation through trial.  From the Federal Circuit to the District Courts, I have the experience with many jurisdictions and understand judges’ tendencies in patent cases.  It is second-nature for me to translate complex scientific and technical concepts into language that juries and judges can comprehend, a critical step in bringing home decisions in our clients’ favor.

In 2016, Ms. Rogowski successfully defended a Delaware law firm against a Rule 11 misconduct charge in patent litigation in the Delaware District Court.  She currently serves on the Delaware District Court Advisory Committee.

Patent Prosecution

I advise on the patentability of inventions; prepare and prosecute patent applications; assist in strategic planning and portfolio management; analyze validity and infringement issues; and conduct freedom-to-operate patent searches and due diligence investigations, reexaminations, reissuances, and inter partes proceedings.

Decades of experience with patent applications and patents awarded makes Rogowski Law a sound choice.  Clients regularly ask me to prepare and prosecute United States and foreign patent applications across a wide variety of industries and a range of organizations- large and small, public and private, for-profit and nonprofit.

Trademarks & Copyrights

By working closely with each client, I help craft strategies that maximize brand value and protection, and identify areas of product or service growth and potential.  This trademark work includes thorough screenings and searches to ascertain the availability of marks in the United States and throughout the world, rendering opinions on their registrability and/or use both offensively and defensively, and preparation and prosecution of trademark applications for registration throughout the world.

Copyright work includes counseling on the effective and appropriate use and protection of copyrighted materials, assisting with rights clearance, developing registration procedures, and obtaining copyright registrations.
