Above all else, we believe in producing quality over quantity, both in terms of substance and form. We sleep better at night knowing that everything we’ve touched has resulted in solid work product.

After all, we know that you'll notice and appreciate the difference, and continue to work with us for time to come.

Time is of the essence because development at the bleeding edge of your field moves at the speed of light- and so are your competitors. For that reason, we strive to get your applications on file as soon as possible and actively handle the processes to reach patent issuance by the USPTO. Especially with the United States’ move to the first-inventor-to-file patent system, getting your patent applications on file quickly has never been more crucial.

How We Run Smart

We’ve significantly reduced overhead by cutting out costly licensing for outdated software and systems. Instead, we reevaluated and opted for solutions that are up-to-date, more capable, and dependable. We've carefully developed efficient procedures to develop a lean practice. We've even taken a cue from our clients by using a modern desk-sharing approach in our main office, a few desks at coworking spaces, and optional telecommuting.

Modern Approach

We bring an innovative approach to IP law practice (well, at least as far as the legal profession goes). IP law firms tend to be stuck in their traditional ways, even while serving cutting edge high-tech clients. Why shouldn’t IP law firms also be up to speed? We’re here to address that, while fiercely maintaining a high quality level of work product. We’re proud to project our culture, we hope you notice.

Patent prosecution, patent preparation


Because we use up-to-date systems and the cloud, we can collaborate within the firm or with clients efficiently, anytime, anywhere. For instance, our file-sharing services allow clients to access pertinent files, while our website portal allows clients to check on the status of their cases.
