Matthews, Lawson, McCutcheon & Joseph, PLLC was founded to serve two distinct but related purposes: the protection of intellectual property rights and the enforcement of those rights through litigation. Furthering those core purposes, the firm provides services in prosecuting domestic and foreign patent and trademark applications, licensing, and opining, for example, on patentability, infringement, invalidity, and registrability through the Firm’s Intellectual Property Prosecution section, while the Firm’s Litigation section focuses on complex litigation related to intellectual property rights and business torts.
The Firm’s leadership shares over one-hundred years of experience in guiding plaintiffs and defendants through difficult legal issues. We have been successful in a wide variety of cases ranging from injunctions against governmental entities, including the State of Texas, to weeks-long patent infringement trials, to lodging and defending prosecution-related matters before the USPTO and appellate boards and courts.
Our Firm’s practice aims to help clients strengthen their intellectual property rights through prosecution and, when necessary, litigation. However, we recognize that clients do not wish to be in the business of litigation, and to that end, we provide a significant amount of client counseling on litigation avoidance.
