Profile

Blake Hurt, a principal with the firm, focuses his practice on preparing, filing, and prosecuting patents and trademarks before the United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) and copyrights before the U.S. Copyright Office.  Additionally, Blake advises clients on the merits of seeking foreign patent and trademark protection around the world, particularly by filing PCT utility patent applications, Hague System design patent applications, and Madrid Protocol trademark applications.  He also provides prior art and patentability searches, authors freedom-to-operate (FTO) and clearance opinions, and gives opinions as to patent infringement/non-infringement and trademark and service mark registerability and infringement. 

Blake is also experienced and efficient at enforcing client intellectual property rights against potential infringers.  He routinely drafts cease and desist letters for his clients, and if necessary, advocates for his clients at the Trademark Trial and Appeals Board (TTAB) and the Patent Trial and Appeals Board (PTAB).  Initiating and defending oppositions and cancellation proceedings at the TTAB is an active part of Blake’s practice.
