Fenwick & West was founded in 1972 in the heart of Silicon Valley—before “Silicon Valley” existed—by four visionary lawyers who left a top-tier New York law firm to pursue their shared belief that technology would revolutionize the business world and to pioneer the legal work for those technological innovations. In order to be most effective, they decided they needed to move to a location close to primary research and technology development. These four attorneys opened their first office in downtown Palo Alto, and Fenwick became one of the first technology law firms in the world.  MORE >

Overview

Robert R. Sachs的执业专注于为软件科技公司提供专利策略咨询和进行专利诉讼。Bob先生有着帮助不同规模公司发展专利组合的丰富经验,从创业公司到跨国公司。

Bob先生拥有丰富经验的领域之一为专利可行性问题:关于什么类型的发明可获专利保护,特别是软件及生命科学相关发明的专利可行性问题。这个问题已经成为专利法发展的新战场,最近最高法院和联邦巡回上诉法院判决了好几个重要的案件。与大多数学者所采取的以结果为导向解决这个问题的方法不同,Bob先生以驱动人类解决功能问题的创造性与发明性这一首要准则作为出发点。从这一点理解,软件和生命科学的发明正是专利法所旨在保护的领域。
