About

Carter, DeLuca, Farrell & Schmidt LLP is an intellectual property boutique firm founded in January, 2002. Although we are a relatively young firm, our founding partners have been working together for over 25 years. As our client base has expanded and diversified, we have grown to meet those increasing needs, adding skilled colleagues to our ranks, many with previous experience in industry, government, large national law firms, or at companies as in-house attorneys. To fully service our U.S. and international clients, Carter DeLuca attorneys practice before the United States Patent and Trademark Office and we have developed an extensive, trusted, world-wide network of foreign associates. Clients depend on our advice and counsel regarding intellectual property matters to give them a competitive advantage. Our creative solutions not only help our clients obtain the broadest possible intellectual property rights, but also provide clarity with respect to risks when introducing new products and proceeding with their business plans.

 

With many of our clients, Carter DeLuca is integrally involved in the product development process. Frequently, we engage early in the process to assist a client’s product development team in order to avoid IP-related pitfalls, thereby maximizing efficiencies and minimizing costs from concept to commercial launch. Whether analyzing the fruits of our clients’ organic R&D or of their market acquisitions, Carter DeLuca’s extensive expertise in strategic IP portfolio development helps to maximize the protection of our clients’ new product development operations. Hand in hand with portfolio development, clients rely on our guidance through the intellectual property clearance phase of new product development.
