Harrity & Harrity‘s Minority Firm Incubator program helps train, develop, and launch minority-owned patent law firms. This paid program is an integral part of the firm’s ongoing diversity initiative to recruit, retain, and advance attorneys who will contribute to the diversity of the patent field.

The Harrity Minority Firm Incubator program is comprised of four phases: 

  • YEAR 1 – Drafting Patent Applications:  Program participants will be trained to draft effective, efficient, high-quality patent applications in the technical areas of software, optics, telecommunications, computer networking, e-commerce, business methods, and others. Through the use of our in-house developed automation tools you will learn how to draft like our attorneys, who complete over 100 applications a year and many of whom average less than 12 hours per application!
  • YEAR 2 – Prosecuting Patent Applications:  Program participants will be trained to prosecute patent applications, negotiate with examiners, communicate effectively with clients, and ensure high-quality outcomes in some of the most difficult art units. Use of examiner analytics and uniform procedures will be emphasized to ensure that responses and other matters can be completed in less time and with a higher likelihood of success!
  • YEAR 3 – Firm Management: Program participants will learn firm management skills, such as how to hire and train patent attorneys and support staff; how to establish and manage a law office; and how to pitch, manage, and retain clients.
  • YEAR 4 – Firm Launch: Program participants will launch their own new patent law firms with already established corporate relationships. New firm leaders will continue to receive ongoing mentorship from Harrity & Harrity to ensure their success.
