Jonathan H. Urbanek has a broadly based IP law practice focused on the preparation and prosecution of patent applications in the United States and abroad. Clients trust Jon to work closely with engineering teams to identify the inventive aspects of new products and prepare patent applications that persuasively differentiate the invention from the prior art. Jon frequently meets with engineers and management in person to determine where each product and its intellectual property fit into the business strategy of the client.
Jon goes beyond the details of the patent process to advise clients on those issues that support an effective patent strategy, including freedom-to-operate decisions, product design-arounds, and patent whitespace analysis. As a result, he plays an important role in counseling clients on developing meaningful patent protection for their technologies while avoiding competitors' patents.
Clients that Jon assists range from individual inventors and small businesses to Fortune 500 companies. Their technologies and applications are equally diverse, encompassing medical devices, irrigation, conveyor belt accessories, power systems, earth-moving equipment, packaging, food processing, communications equipment, e-commerce, computer systems, electro-mechanical devices, railcar systems, and manufacturing.
