Our People

In addition to the experienced patent attorneys listed below, we value and maintain Of-Counsel relationships with other practitioners having a wide variety of technical backgrounds. This provides us with the flexibility to prepare and prosecute patent applications relating to increasingly diverse technical fields. This also facilitates a quick turnaround time of bulk work requests, when necessary. The ability to efficiently leverage our Of-Counsel relationships enables us to quickly accommodate large volumes of work in a reasonable amount of time.
