Ehrlich & Fenster of Ehrlich Group – Drafting & Prosecuting IP
Ehrlich & Fenster of Ehrlich Group, offers premier expertise in all matters concerning the protection and prosecution of intellectual property. We take pride in providing services, not only in Israel, but also in the United States before the USPTO. We work with many major international corporations, including IBM and Microsoft, as well as first-tier IP firms from Germany, the United Kingdom, South Korea, India, Spain, Portugal, Italy and China.
At Ehrlich & Fenster we appreciate the intricacy of interdisciplinary issues. Our legal team, which comprises over 50 jurists, attorneys at law, patent attorneys, technical advisers and renowned experts, many of whom hold a master’s or PhD, learns continually and keeps abreast of new tactics, international issues and technological and research developments that emerge daily in all disciplines of high technology.
We are well versed in the rules of the IP game; our strategic edge lies particularly in our ability to pinpoint the single technology or set of core technologies hidden in the labyrinth of development work or behind a discovery. Having helped our clients to isolate these assets, we then analyse and evaluate the proprietary extras that provide the winning edge. Bearing our clients’ future goals in mind at all times, we assess potential opportunities and directions in which to further develop these assets.
During 2015 IVC Research Center examined the impact that owning a patent has on a start-up’s success and found, among other things, that filing a patent application through Ehrlich & Fenster increased the chance for exit by 21%, increased the chance to raise funds by 58% and increased the amount of funds raised by 52%.
Ehrlich & Fenster has been handling the largest amount of patent applications, in compression to all Israeli agents, that derive from inventions generated by the five major Universities (Tel-Aviv, Jerusalem, Weizmann, Beersheba and Technion) in Israel for the last ten years, (2008 – 2018 – Data by PatBase Analytics) working with all Tech Transfer Organizations including T3 – of the Technion, Yissum- of the Hebrew University, Yeda- of the Weizmann Institute of Science, etc.
Every year, the firm files thousands of patent applications for Israeli and international clients, justifying its recognition as the top Patent Cooperation Treaty filing firm in Israel by Managing Intellectual Property Global PCT Leaders Report. Further, each year the firm files more than 1,000 patent applications in the United States alone. The firm’s global reputation of filing and prosecuting US patent applications before the USPTO is the result of the immense knowledge of its patent attorneys, around a quarter of whom are licensed to practise before the USPTO. Some of our patent attorneys gained experience as patent examiners in the USPTO and all are directly involved with the USPTO. This in-depth knowledge of domestic and US legislation secures us a high allowance rate. Each department is engaged in drafting and prosecuting patent applications, including opposition procedures, rendering opinions regarding IP matters, IP-related due diligence processes and in consultations regarding IP and commercialisation strategies.
