Computer Technology

Computer technology is perhaps the most rapidly changing of all current technologies. We can now hold in our hands more powerful devices than could previously be contained by an entire room. The development of increasingly larger data storage densities combined with decreasing chip sizes has enabled smaller and more portable devices than previously imaginable.

Computer technology exists at the intersection of two important but traditionally separate branches of engineering—namely computer science and electrical engineering. Merchant & Gould has many professionals with degrees in one or both of these areas. Additionally, many of our professionals have years of industry experience as computer programmers or electrical design engineers.

Merchant & Gould represents a wide array of clients in the computer industry. We are a preferred provider for one of the largest software companies in the world, for example, as well as other large companies. Our firm also represents numerous small to midsized clients, including startup companies and individuals.

The law regarding the patentability of computer-related technology is constantly changing both in the United States and abroad, and it is important that your patent attorney understand the nuances and intricacies of this area of the law. The professionals at Merchant & Gould advise clients in this area of the law daily, and are able to work with their clients to develop strategies to protect innovations involving computer technology.
