Our Services

Pauly, DeVries Smith & Deffner strives to deliver maximum value by providing the highest quality services in a timely fashion and at a reasonable price.

Our professionals are skilled at obtaining strong patent protection in a wide range of technologies. We directly represent clients before the United States Patent and Trademark Office, and assist them with international filings in jurisdictions around the world.   

We help develop patent portfolios and strategies that are tailored to each client’s individual needs and circumstances.  We also work extensively on clearance and freedom to operate issues to help our clients successfully navigate third party intellectual property rights.  

Many of our clients innovate collaboratively with their suppliers and customers.  We work with clients to facilitate these collaborative efforts by assisting with licensing and related negotiations and agreements.

Despite their best efforts, businesses may encounter contested issues related to their products and services.  We have extensive experience helping our clients reach successful conclusions, often partnering with our client’s litigation council to obtain the best possible result.
