Industrial Design Expert in Patent Reexamination

Case Description:

An industrial design expert with patent reexamination knowledge was sought to consult on patents before the USPTO. At issue were six patents with very similar claims for a device for mounting flat-screen electronics. Specifically, the patents addressed the mechanical aspects of an adjustable extension arm.

IMS Expert Services was asked to locate an expert in industrial design with a mechanical engineering background to perform a forensic analysis of an adjustable arm for mounting electronic peripheral devices. The expert also needed to have product design experience and experience working with the USPTO, preferably in the patent reexamination process.
