Sharp Thinkers


It's our job to know our way around IP law, but we like to think bigger than traditional theory and risk assessment. Why color inside the lines when there's so much opportunity beyond the borders? We ask the business questions first. We help our clients explore new challenges. We draw up clear steps for success in terms that mean business.

IP decisions require specialized knowledge—that's where we come in. Your top priority is your business, and your IP decisions are about finding the right balance of risk and reward. We can help you find it.

As IP lawyers, we know where to look for risks that might affect your business. As business executives, we see roadblocks that might stall your IP strategy, because we've been there. We talk about challenges in language that makes sense, and show you the steps to move past the barriers. 

We work with businesses that vary in size and focus. What they have in common is innovation. For these businesses, the right counter assertion patent or licensing program can be the difference between leading the market and lagging behind. 

We evaluate portfolios to identify the best and brightest patents to use in your patent strategy. We can guide you through buying the patents that help you stand out, and selling the ones that don't fit. We can help you build the business case, the financial models and the resource requirements for your patents. And that's just the beginning.
