With many industries now reliant on computer-implemented inventions, coupled with recent uncertainty over changing law, there has been an increase in rejections based on patentable subject matter under 35 US.C. § 101. WHIPgroup attorneys, many with backgrounds in computer and software technologies, have obtained a unique proficiency in overcoming such rejections. Analysis of firm cases from 2016-2017 indicated that WHIPgroup overcame rejections 78% of the time without having to pursue appeal. To achieve this success, WHIPgroup leverages its litigation experience where it has argued patentability in district and appellate courts around the country. Whatever the technology, whether industrial monitoring, electronic communication protocols, medical device controllers, robotics, or software applications, WHIPgroup has a proven track record of success in overcoming patentable subject matter rejections.
