Kiklis and Clark, PLLC has launched as a new innovative firm having over a half-century of experience in all areas of patent law, with a particular focus on software and computer technology. The firm’s founders, Michael Kiklis and Kimani Clark, have a long history of working together and handling high-stakes matters. The co-founders believe in providing value to clients by leveraging their extensive experience and innovating in every aspect of the business.
Kiklis and Clark handles PTAB cases and patent litigation as well as Federal Circuit appeals from those cases. Collectively, the founders have handled approximately 100 trials at the USPTO’s Patent Trial and Appeal Board (PTAB) and over 20 Federal Circuit appeals from those cases. The firm also handles large-scale patent prosecution, pre-litigation strategies and negotiations, patent studies, cross-licensing, infringement and validity analyses, and patent opinions. A complete hands-on approach combined with significant depth of experience and a history of representing some of the largest corporations in the world are what sets the firm apart.
“We are excited about partnering with our clients to provide our personalized service and strategic advice, to resolve their patent issues, and to handle their PTAB needs,” said Kiklis. “Together, we’ve handled high-stakes patent matters for some of the largest tech companies in the world. Our deep experience, which includes handling cases for such leading technology companies as Broadcom, Cisco, Thermo Fisher Scientific and Schlumberger, ensures an in-depth understanding of both our client’s business and IP needs to handle their most challenging matters.”
“Our focus is on delivering continual innovation to every aspect of our work with our clients, from legal strategy to customer experience, operations and technology,” said Clark.
Kiklis leverages his nearly 30 years of experience to assist clients in PTAB trials as well as district court patent litigation.
