With our focus on full-service patent and trademark preparation and prosecution, Edell, Shapiro & Finnan is among a minority of firms having an in-house drafting department that specializes in producing detailed mechanical drawings, high-tech electrical schematics, chemical diagrams, genetic renderings, and trademark representations.

Formal drawings are a crucial part of any utility or design patent application or trademark design. These formal drawings must meet specific and varying requirements established by different patent and trademark offices throughout the world. The in-house drafting department of Edell, Shapiro & Finnan has the knowledge, skill, and experience necessary to prepare drawings that meet these requirements.

Having our own in-house drafting department allows our attorneys and clients to work directly with a highly experienced draftsperson who is familiar with our clients’ technologies and needs, providing unparalleled convenience and efficiency. We use state-of-the-art 3D Computer Aided Drafting (CAD) software to create our drawings in a high quality and timely manner.  Regardless of the file format, we can easily adapt CAD models received from our clients to produce professional patent drawings. Our sophisticated drafting department is also able to digitally process and enhance photos, in both color, and black and white, for use in both patent and trademark applications.
