Schwegman, Lundberg, Woessner & Kluth

Schwegman, Lundberg & Woessner, P.A. (Formerly "Schwegman, Lundberg, Woessner & Kluth, P.A.") is an intellectual property law firm founded in December 1993 by six attorneys and associated staff. Based in Minneapolis, Minnesota, the firm was one of the first patent law boutique firms in the United States to focus solely on patent prosecution and not on patent litigation (although this was already fairly common in Europe). The founding attorneys had previously worked at Merchant & Gould. Since its inception, the firm has grown to at least 70 attorneys, and three offices. The firm focuses on high technology patent applications, and has also developed docketing software for internal use, and for resale to other law firms and corporations.

Foundation IP, an IP management software producer, reports that Schwegman, Lundberg, & Woessner, P.A. counts the University of Minnesota and Fortune 500 companies Micron Technology, Intel, and the Guidant Corporation among their clients.

In March, 2003, a survey by PatentRatings, LLC rated Schwegman, Lundberg, Woessner & Kluth, P.A. with top-ten scores in five of its categories, including first in biotechnology patents, computer patents and medical patents, and third in electrical patents ( [http://www.fitzpatrickcella.com/images/pub_attachment/attachment80.pdf PDF file] ).
