Deepak Malhotra

Practice/Organization Description

Are you looking for a partner to help protect your ideas? Let me introduce myself. I am Deepak Malhotra. I have 20 years experience in patent preparation and prosecution, and have successfully prosecuted over one hundred patents to allowance.

Importantly, I am dedicated to strong customer service. That’s not something you experience much in the legal world – but I believe you deserve timeliness as well as quality.

How long does it take for your attorney to return your calls and complete projects? And what is your own response time to your customers? Why expect less from your attorney than you give to your clients?

I have had experience in both large firms and small firms. I have represented a large variety of types of clients from start-ups to Fortune 500 companies. I left the partnership at my previous firm to focus on a low volume of high importance matters. I have a high level of experience in protecting software and business method inventions and maintain a blog of all major cases relating to software patents.

I have worked extensively with various EE technologies including software, RF communications, sensors, smart cards, ESD protection, tape drives, disk drives, servo systems, printers, static memory cells, dynamic memory cells, databases, publishing systems, virtual reality, wafer production methods, wafer polishing, antenna diversity systems, RF collision arbitration systems, marketing systems, electron multipliers, and digital clock recovery loops, to name a few. I also have experience in protecting mechanical inventions in a wide variety of fields such as

automotive technology, environmental systems, and wastewater treatment systems.

When infringement occurs, I have an association with a contingency fee law firm that provide vigorous enforcement of cases they take.

I strive to provide fast, high quality service.

The average patent trial costs about 1.4 million dollars. There are many traps in preparing a patent application. Something as little as a poorly thought-out Title can result in a weaker patent than you deserve. When seeking patent counsel, your intellectual property is too valuable to put in the hands of the lowest bidder.

Contact me today if you want quality representation in the field of intellectual property.
