You can’t fake passion.

We genuinely love helping companies grow. Make no mistake: patents, trademarks and copyrights are not commodities. Each requires in-depth experience in their respective industries from experts that are accessible throughout the process. Our seasoned attorneys are extremely well-versed in a variety of fields, from software and the internet of things to energy, medical devices, life sciences, patentable plants and consumer products. More importantly, we are passionate about being very hands-on when we work with companies—you will always have access to the lead professional working on your project.  We’ve developed a reputation for being true business partners and solving problems in the most complex areas of patent, trademark and copyright law. It’s no wonder many of our clients have used us repeatedly over the years.
