Keats Quinalty is a strategist. Clients hire Keats when their innovation is under attack; he is a trusted ally who utilizes his experience working as an Examiner in the US Patent Office to build or solidify patent portfolios to protect client’s intellectual property. Because he takes personal interest in learning the nuances of each product and process, Keats builds individualized, comprehensive patent strategies to best protect the interests of each client. He is regularly entrusted by clients to handle prosecuting their “bet-the-company” inventions to patent.
Keats also has extensive pretrial and in-trial litigation experience. Keats has evaluated thousands of patent claims and has been involved in litigations successfully asserting claims of several patents he drafted.
With over 20 years of experience in all aspects of patent preparation, prosecution, opinion work, and litigation, Keats is regularly consulted by clients and colleagues to address complex matters in mechanical, electromechanical, biomedical, computer, medical device, design, and electrical arts. His patent strategies have been successful in litigation, in prosecution, and in “after final” patent and post-issuance procedures, such as appeals, inter partes, and ex parte patent office proceedings.
