At the place where invention and discovery intersect with law, a cadre of bright lights applies its knowledge of science, technology, and industry on behalf of our clients. These are Ballard Spahr's technical specialists and patent agents, the professionals who help guide our clients through the patent prosecution process and, in the event of litigation, help clarify complex issues and assist with technical matters related to strategy, discovery, and trial. In other words, they are indispensable to our patent practice, thriving in an atmosphere where the work is exacting, the stakes high, the subject matter highly technical.

Along with superb academic credentials, our IP professionals possess a level of real-world experience in their fields that inspires confidence in our clients. They come to Ballard Spahr from research institutes, laboratories at major manufacturers, and the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office. We welcome others like them.
