Intellectual Strategies is your experienced strategic legal partner

We build relationships beyond transactions. Our engagements encourage collaboration with you at every stage as you develop your team and technology.

From Silicon Valley law firms to in-house general counsel, our attorneys combine hand-on business experience and IP expertise for innovative companies and entrepreneurial teams.

Whether supporting your IP or corporate competitive advantages, Intellectual Strategies aligns legal strategy with your corporate objectives, employs proprietary tools and frameworks, optimizes your intellectual property portfolio, and integrates with your executive team and stakeholders. 

Our STRATEGY — Your SUCCESS™
We're more than "outsourced" legal services. We "integrate" as your team member for IP and corporate legal needs
We integrate with your team and perform just like your team member. This allows us to be fully informed at all times and committed to your success. We want to help you make the best legal and business choices, as early as possible, to minimize costly mistakes. Our Integrated Legal Counsel approach allows you to have access to our legal team at a fraction of the typical costs for hiring your own in-house attorney.
We help align IP assets with business objectives
Combining legal, business, and engineering expertise allows our team to evaluate and analyze intellectual property portfolios in a way that statistical models and automated analytics are not yet capable of. Your IP strategy should be transparent and directly aligned with your business model objectives. We'll help you evaluate your business model, audit your IP portfolio,  and design and deploy a customized IP strategy.
We help innovators protect their technology and trade secrets
Patents and trade secrets are a critical entry point to growing a valuable technology portfolio. We've helped innovators obtain and manage thousands of patents and protect their inventions on six continents. Our streamlined approach helps you obtain the right protection for your stage of development and deployment. We treat your IP assets as dynamic tools that functionally adapt as your business "pivots" and grows. 
We are "general counsel" to executive teams and ventures
As experienced general counsel for technology ventures, we understand the scope of demands placed on an executive team. By operating in tandem with boards and management, we mitigate the risks and enhance the opportunities relevant to legal and business positions of your growing company. Our outsourced approach as your contracted "general counsel" provides a balanced blend of legal expertise and resource allocation.
We enable innovators to DIY their own PPA
Are you an inventor or innovator who wants to draft and file your own provisional patent application using expert, step-by-step guidance from an experienced patent attorney, without actually hiring an attorney? We provide online and live workshops just for you. Get started with our free information, or go all-in with a comprehensive workshop you can use over and over.
We make sure your brand is protected
Your brand is the face of your reputation. We understand the value of some businesses hinges on their user base and brand identity. We help brands prepare, file, examine, and enforce trademark rights in the United States and abroad. Our business background bolsters our legal expertise to give you a well-rounded approach to choosing, creating, and commercializing your brand.
