Who We Are

Our practice has been focused exclusively on intellectual property law for nearly a century. 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.

Our People

Our professionals are technical and legal professionals 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. Vault has named us one of the Top 10 Midsize Law Firms to Work For
