Schwegman, Lundberg, Woessner & Kluth Company Profile

23:43 EST 16th December 2018 | BioPortfolio

In 1993, Micheal Schwegman, Steven Lundberg, Warren Woessner, and Daniel Kluth left a prominent Minneapolis IP law firm to establish their own firm. They recognized that conventional IP firms tended to concentrate significantly more resources on litigation than on patent prosecution. As a result, many firms were hindering the ability of skilled patent prosecutors to do their best work, and therefore possibly shortchanging their clients.The founders developed a new IP law firm model, in which obtaining the strongest patents is the sole focus of the firm. They founded SLWK to provide patent preparation and prosecution services for emerging and established corporations and research institutions.Today, Schwegman, Lundberg, Woessner & Kluth has grown to over 70 attorneys and represents a spectrum of Fortune 500 companies and major universities that are leaders in high technology. The firm obtained over 3,000 patents in its first ten years.Over 70 attorneys make up the SLWK team. The firm has twenty-one shareholders, which include Micheal L. Schwegman, Steven W. Lundberg, Warren D. Woessner, Daniel J. Kluth, Bradley A. Forrest, Thomas F. Brennan, A. James Nelson, Timothy E. Bianchi, Janet E. Embretson, Richard E. Billion, Eduardo E. Drake, Janal M. Kalis, Ann M. McCrackin, Catherine I. Klima-Silberg, Andre Marais, Suneel Arora, Gary Speier, Garth Vivier, John Sumner, Michael Lynch, and Robin Chadwick. The firm also has eight officers, which include John Dahl, David Black, Peter Maki, Joe Mehrle, Mark Muller, David Peterson, Marv Beekman, and Tim Clise.It is the mission of SLWK to be the highest quality provider of intellectual property services.To further its mission of providing cost-effective, high-quality protection for its clients' intellectual property, the firm concentrates solely on patent prosecution and refrains from the active conduct of litigation. It does, however, support litigation through opinion work, IP audits and expert witness services. The firm also developed and employs sophisticated proprietary systems to manage and control patent preparation and prosecution.
