Computer Technologies

The global computer technology market is ever-expanding and diversifying to provide new solutions to business problems and new benefits to end users. Like other IP-intensive industries, an instrumental part of surviving and thriving in the computer technology sector is ensuring you have the exclusive rights to your most important IP business assets. Such exclusive rights as are granted by IP protection can restrain your competitors from misappropriating your technology and protect your margins against copycats who could absent IP protection undercut you with lower, commoditized pricing.

At Heer Law, we have extensive experience providing legal advice and solutions for business owners looking to bring new computer technologies to market. Our team has extensive experience securing patent protection for emerging innovative new technologies. In particular, our principal Christopher Heer, is a certified specialist in patent law and obtained a pre-law degree in computer engineering complemented by a few years of work experience in industry.

  • Artificial intelligence, particularly neural networks and expert systems
  • Computer vision and object identification
  • Computer graphics
