Richard M. Rosati has practiced patent law with Kenyon & Kenyon since 1984. His practice has three concentrations: counseling clients on patent matters, patent prosecution and litigation on patent, trade secret and unfair competition claims.
The principal focus of Mr. Rosati’s practice is advising clients on issues of patent infringement and validity, typically in connection with their receipt of a cease and desist letter alleging patent infringement or their consideration of asserting their own patent rights against a competitor. The advice given to clients on such matters is rendered with a litigation perspective because another significant component of Mr. Rosati’s practice is patent litigation, both at the trial and appellate levels. Mr. Rosati’s extensive experience in the preparation and prosecution of patent applications and his practice before the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office is also of great value to clients seeking advice on patent infringement and validity matters. In the patent prosecution area, Mr. Rosati’s concentration is in the electrical and mechanical arts. He also has considerable patent licensing experience and he represents clients in licensing negotiations. Typical clients in all of Mr. Rosati’s practice areas are manufacturers of consumer electronics, medical instruments and semiconductor equipment.
Mr. Rosati authors articles on contemporary issues of interest in patent law and is a contributor to the New York Intellectual Property Law Association’s Guide To Patent Arbitration (B.N.A.). He is also active in the intellectual property division of the Nassau County Bar Association. Mr. Rosati lives in New York.
