The questions you might be asking as an engineer/manager.
What does all this stuff mean?
Does this infringe our patent?
Are the claims relevant?

Are we at risk of breaking someone's patent?
Is there a different way to do things that's OK?

Questions you might be asking as an attorney/lawyer
What does all this stuff mean?
Can someone explain how this thing works in simple terms?
Was all this stuff well known when the patent was filed?
Have these guys really got something new?

Getting Help
I've had considerable experience in evaluating electrical engineering patents for competitive analysis both from the point of view of looking at existing patents to see if they presented any areas of conflict with business intentions, and with looking at drafts, in conjunction with expert patent attorneys to set up justifiable, realistic and useful claims (particularly for the patents I hold myself).
Seen from an engineering point of view, there are issues with interpretation of patents, with assessment of their relevance, with understanding the claims and with relating the claims to the business implications. There may also be issues of validity which need to be addressed, especially if someone is claiming you are infringing.

You will probably need a patent attorney's professional view, but getting the dialog going and managing it isn't easy. If you are thinking that it's too difficult and a bridge between the engineering and the patenting (or vice-versa) is needed, then maybe I can help. Chances are I've been there already!

Invitation. McCann can help if you have a design or operational problem that needs some technical support that is outside your team's experience, some quantitative assessment of what is really the cause of the difficulties, some design alternatives or just a fresh look by an intelligent interrogator.
If you have a problem with the behaviour of a market sector, plant, process or item of equipment and would like to get a quantitative handle on it to improve yield or optimise performance, then contact me. I'm always ready to give a little time to discuss a new puzzle, in confidence, of course. We'll only worry about fees when there is some defined work. I can be flexible about how I work with you.
