GRAND JUNCTION, Colo.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–United States Patent No. 9,619,573, prepared and prosecuted by Lewis Roca Rothgerber Christie LLP, one of nation’s leading intellectual property law firms, has been granted to ProStar™. The issued patent covers a computer implemented method for avoiding damage within an excavation area. The patented method helps to prevent damages to utilities and the environment during construction, maintenance and groundbreaking activities as well as damages caused by severe conditions including weather, fires, and earthquakes.
“It’s always gratifying to play a significant role in the issuance of a patent for a client,” said Raymond R. Tabandeh, the LRRC partner who prosecuted the patent. “Damages to buried utilities during excavation is a major problem in the U.S. and Canada, and in almost every case when excavation is involved, damage is caused by lack of qualified data being available. This patent addresses these concerns,” added Tabandeh.
