3form is one of the world’s leading manufacturers of sustainable building materials and architectural hardware solutions. Early in the company’s history, 3form developed an innovative process for encapsulating decorative material in resin, thereby preventing the materials from being crushed when manufactured. Obtaining patent coverage for this innovation was challenging, yet 3form engaged Workman Nydegger attorneys to draft and prosecute creative patent claims that capture the essence of their invention.

Through regular, in-person interviews with Examiners at the USPTO, Workman Nydegger attorneys have successfully educated the Examiners on 3form’s unique material features, enabling 3form to secure multiple patents to protect their innovations from multiple angles. In cooperation with Workman Nydegger, 3form has developed a substantial portfolio of utility and design patents that has helped position 3form as the dominant force in the architectural materials market.
