Our practice has been focused exclusively on intellectual property law for close to 90 years. Leading companies, innovative startups, major research universities, and Nobel Prize winners consistently turn to us to protect and enforce their intellectual property rights. We learn their businesses and apply our knowledge of their industries, competitors, and markets to create IP strategies that simultaneously enhance the value of their IP and achieve their business goals.

IP Focus

We believe our clients benefit from being at a firm devoted solely to intellectual property because our focus on IP law provides a common purpose and a more interconnected firm. Clients depend on us for all of their IP needs, including patents, post-grant proceedings, litigation, trademarks, licensing and other IP agreements, copyrights, opinions, trade secrets, IP audits and due diligence, competitive analysis, and alternative dispute resolution.

Our People

Our professionals are technical and legal specialists at the forefront of their fields and emerging markets. We are committed to the professional development of our employees, and are dedicated to hiring and keeping the best people by investing in them, over the long term, through formal and informal training and mentoring programs. Because of this, we have a very low turnover rate which translates to stable client teams.

Our Structure

Our structure allows for seamless collaboration between our various practice areas. Members of our seven core practice groups often form client teams when specialized knowledge or full IP coverage is required. Our legal staff is supported by a well-trained team of paralegals, search specialists, and international filing specialists. We also work closely with hand-picked law firms in 130 countries to help clients execute international filing strategies and defend their rights in global markets.

Our Core Values

Firm decisions are driven by our core values of mutual respect, a collegial work environment, and sufficient time for family. In addition, we value work that is varied, challenging, cutting-edge, and has a critical impact on our clients’ businesses. We are invested in our clients’ success and zealously pursue their best interests while maintaining the highest ethical standards.
