Wenderoth is an Intellectual Property firm with one primary focus – prosecution. We have been serving the needs of clients around the world in the patent and trademark arenas since 1921. After spending the better part of a century with this focus, we know every aspect of this business inside and out.

A natural extension of our work over the years has come to include prosecution-related services such as opinions, strategic counseling and portfolio management advice, patent term analysis, post-grant proceedings, search work, opposition and cancellation proceedings, and maintenance fee and renewal tracking and payment.

We love what we do and this passion drives us to remain leaders in our practice.  Wenderoth has procured tens of thousands of patents and trademark registrations for our clients in nearly every technology and business endeavor imaginable. Wenderoth was noted in The Legal 500 as a “highly rated Washington, DC-based IP boutique with an excellent track record for preparing, filing and prosecuting patents, as well as reexaminations and interferences. The firm covers every aspect of biotechnology, chemical, electrical and mechanical IP law.” We consistently rank among the top 25 patent firms in the nation in annual number of patents obtained and are often featured in Intellectual Property Today. Undistracted by other areas of law, our focus is always on perfecting our processes for patent and trademark prosecution and complementary services.

Our one and only office in Washington, D.C. happens to be minutes from the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office. Our proximity to the USPTO enables our attorneys to conveniently conduct in-person interviews with Examiners, an advantage of ours that greatly benefits our clients.
