As an experienced patent attorney, Morgan Heller is a passionate defender of intellectual property (IP) and effective project manager of all aspects of the patent process. In his practice, Morgan assists companies of all sizes and major universities with patent matters ranging from advising on establishing internal IP management practices and obtaining patent protection in the U.S. and around the world, to enforcing patent rights and avoiding patent infringement.
In a time when some view patents as mere commodities and others seek patents at the lowest possible cost, Morgan continues to see the negative impact that poorly drafted patent applications have on their owners. These impacts include applications dying at patent offices, patent claims needing to be too narrow, patent litigations failing, financing deals falling through, and company valuations being lower than expected, to name a few. Morgan is ardent about counseling clients about these pitfalls and is even more zealous about helping clients obtain high-quality patents, while at the same time being mindful of clients’ financial constraints.
