Since its inception, Canavan & Monka has concentrated on high quality patent prosecution and opinion work in a broad spectrum of technical fields. Our specialization in the area of intellectual property and our extensive experience enables us to counsel clients on complex legal issues and procedures unique to this area of the law. At the same time, we provide our clients with high-quality cost effective legal representation.

We have experience working in large corporate intellectual property departments, which gives us a unique insight into the particular needs of corporate clients. We provide our corporate clients with high-quality patent prosecution and counseling on matters of patent infringement and validity. At the same time, we have represented many individuals and small entities with inventions encompassing a wide variety of technical disciplines, and enjoy working with individuals who come to us with their technical innovations.

The firm was founded in August, 2003 by Bob Canavan and Gary Monka, who were formerly colleagues in the legal department of AT&T Corp. Our offices are conveniently located at 62 Grove Street, in downtown Somerville, NJ.
