We are among the largest mechanical groups in New England, with 20 attorneys and technology specialists whose engineering backgrounds and industry experience blanket all aspects of mechanical technologies. Clients know we can handle virtually any technology, which means we don’t spend time getting up to speed and can focus, instead, on providing perceptive advice on issues such as new product development and competitive targeting. We also spend time educating senior management on IP issues so they can react quickly to opportunities and threats.
"We have enjoyed a monopoly with our patents, which means they must be strong. There is more strategic thinking than with other firms."
Our group’s clients range from industry leaders like Bard and Husky Injection Molding, to leading research institutions, like MIT and Brown University, to emerging start-ups like Coravin, and to some of the most recognizable consumer product companies like Nikon, Burton Snowboards and Keurig/Green Mountain. Many of our clients have been with us for decades because they value our consistency and institutional knowledge.
"They have been a fantastic partner. They are thoughtful and responsive, and they out-lawyer anyone we have been up against."
The services we provide are always tied to the business needs of clients, with both a short term and long term focus. We take into consideration a client’s plans for growth, locations of key manufacturing activities, downstream markets, industry trends, and competitive obstacles, among others. We then might advise on which type of application and how many to file, or in which foreign markets to seek protection, or the benefits of a design patent over a utility application, all the while considering engineering alternatives and other steps to minimize exposure.
"It’s fair to say we would not be where we are as a business without them. They were a key decision that we made years ago that has enabled us to go from being a $30 million company to being a multi-billion dollar business. They give me peace of mind."
