Dilendorf Law Firm assists companies that use blockchain, FinTech, PropTech, BioTech, telemedicine, gaming and other cutting-edge technologies with patent searches, applications, registration, prosecution and enforcement.
As a recent example, blockchain (or distributed ledger technology) has brought stunning innovations to numerous industries, including finances, healthcare, supply chains, gaming, e-commerce, etc. Even though blockchain and DApps are all about decentralization, transparency and nonproprietary use of technology, companies apply blockchain to create and commercialize new processes or products, which may be patentable. In fact, the number of patent applications involving blockchain has skyrocketed over the past few years. Startups, existing businesses, giants like IBM, Bank of America, Walmart, Mastercard and others have already secured dozens of blockchain patents. In addition, new blockchain industries have emerged, such as cryptocurrency trading and mining, which may require patents to stay competitive.
Our patent attorneys are well-versed in blockchain and other digital technologies, and the transformative solutions they offer to improve the business practices, including data processing, distribution, security, trust and control.
We advise clients on (1) patentability of their inventions or improvements, as opposed to mere application of the open source technology and other criteria, which may prevent from patent eligibility; (2) developing a comprehensive patent and overall IP strategy; and (3) obtaining end enforcing patents, based on our expert analysis and research.
