About

Stanzione & Associates, PLLC is an intellectual property law firm with over 35 years of combined experience protecting the intellectual property of corporate entities, start-ups, and individual inventors.  Stanzione & Associates, PLLC separates itself from other Intellectual Property law firms in that Mr. Stanzione has extensive past experience working at the United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) as a supervisory level patent examiner, thus having the insight and long term relationships at the USPTO to work well with patent examiners to achieve quality patents.  Mr. Stanzione trains each member of his team to conduct well-prepared interviews at the USPTO for patent applications, to obtain strong patents for each client, and to focus on every detail of our clients’ ideas, technology and concerns, thus providing 100% satisfaction and the highest quality.  Drafting patent applications in today’s environment requires far more than drafting an application and claims.  Each invention must be understood well enough to consider how the invention may be used in the future, as well as the present, thus providing the insight such that the resulting patent will be valuable for its duration.

Stanzione & Associates, PLLC is strategically based in the greater Washington DC area, such that personal access to The United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO), the Patent and Trademark Appeals Board, the Office of the Registrar of Copyrights, the Library of Congress, the Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit, and the Washington DC Airports can be achieved within minutes.  Importantly, conducting in-person interviews with patent examiners helps expedite the grant of a patent quicker and with higher quality.  Stanzione & Associates, PLLC can conduct these in-person interviews with little to no travel costs passed onto its clients since we are located within minutes from the USPTO.

Our team is devoted to protecting inventions in all realms of technology, as well as trademarks and logos for your business.  Literally several thousand quality granted patents on file with the United States Patent and Trademark Office in various technologies list Mr. Stanzione as the patent attorney of record.  We have extensive experience in drafting and successfully prosecuting patent applications to allowance in technologies such as all types of electronic circuits, semiconductor design, and fabrication (photo-lithography); consumer electronics; computer systems; financial technologies (Fintech); image forming devices (printers, copiers, scanners, etc.); complex mechanical devices and systems; optical systems; telecommunication systems; LCD displays; LED displays; Organic LED (OLED) displays; medical devices and systems; health-related technologies (Apps); games and toys; database and file management systems, materials science and physics; as well as many other scientific fields.

Mr. Stanzione has represented some of the largest and most state of the art corporate clients around the globe to obtain valuable patent portfolios, as well as trademarks and licenses. The attorneys at Stanzione & Associates, PLLC are also well trained in many of these high technology areas, as well as being highly trained in practicing other types of intellectual property law, including trademark filings, patentability searches, freedom to operate opinions, non-infringement opinions, reexaminations, and IPRs.

The key to success in obtaining the most comprehensive protection for your intellectual property is working with a Patent Attorney and Trademark Attorney that understands your ideas, inventions, the technologies in general, as well as having first-hand experience working at upper levels at the USPTO. The attorneys at Stanzione & Associates, PLLC have the experience and background to guide corporate clients, start-ups and independent inventors to obtain comprehensive patent and trademark protection in the United States, and around the world.

After leaving the United States Patent and Trademark Office as a supervisory level examiner, Mr. Stanzione has represented clients in all areas of Intellectual Property (IP) Law to help his clients build strong IP  portfolios, which today is clearly the most important aspect of a successful business.

Mr. Stanzione’s team has been recognized internationally by the most reputable IP magazine, the Intellectual Asset Management magazine, as being one of the top TEN IP patent procurement firms in the United States for Quality.  (See IAM June 2013).  Stanzione & Associates, PLLC will continue to strive to provide each of its clients with the highest level of IP representation.
