After graduation, he worked as a software developer on complex Medicaid systems, making him a highly sought-after software patent attorney. Since 2012, Rohit has been practicing software patent law at the USPTO, focusing on a diverse spectrum of technologies.

Rohit’s deep comprehension of software technology combined with his passion for innovation has resulted in a successful track record as a software patent attorney. He has been instrumental in helping clients secure patents in various domains and has demonstrated expertise in successfully appealing and defending software-based patent applications before the USPTO.
The Debate on Software Patents
Software patents have been a topic of debate for decades. The Supreme Court has decided about a half dozen cases touching on the patent eligibility of software-related inventions. The eligibility of software, as such, for patent protection has been only scantily addressed in the courts or in legislation. Yet, software instructions have been determined to be too intangible to fit within any of the statutory categories such as machines or articles of manufacture.
On June 19, 2014, the United States Supreme Court ruled in Alice Corp. v. CLS Bank International that “merely requiring generic computer implementation fails to transform [an] abstract idea into a patent-eligible invention.” This ruling has significantly impacted the standards for patent eligibility of software inventions .
Why Choose a Software Patent Attorney with Experience?
Software patents demand a high level of technical and legal expertise. In the wake of landmark decisions like Alice v. CLS Bank, it’s more important than ever to have a software patent attorney who can successfully navigate the complexities of the USPTO and the courts. Rohit Chhabra’s experience as a software patent attorney is particularly valuable in this complex and ever-evolving landscape. His deep understanding of both the technical aspects of software and the intricacies of patent law enables him to navigate these challenges effectively. He is adept at drafting robust and persuasive patent applications that can withstand scrutiny from the USPTO and potential infringers.
Rohit’s experience spans across various domains of software, such as mobile apps, web applications, cloud computing, artificial intelligence, blockchain, cybersecurity, gaming, and more. Each domain presents its unique challenges, opportunities, and trends that influence the patentability and value of software inventions. Rohit’s domain-specific experience and knowledge of the current state of the art and market demand for your invention make him an ideal choice as your software patent attorney.
Reasonable Fees Structure
Software patents are not cheap. They involve a lot of time, effort, and resources to prepare and prosecute. Therefore, you need a software patent attorney who charges reasonable fees for their services. You don’t want to overpay for a patent that may not be worth it, or underpay for a patent that may not be valid or enforceable.
- A transparent and fair pricing structure that reflects the value and complexity of your invention
- Flexible payment options, such as flat fees, hourly rates, or contingency fees, depending on your preferences and circumstances
- An estimate of the total cost of obtaining a patent, including the attorney fees, USPTO fees, and any other expenses
