Technology Ventures
​​​​​​​and Transactions
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.
Intellectual Property
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.
Patent and Trademark
We help innovators protect their technology and brand 
Patents and trademarks are a critical entry point to growing a valuable technology portfolio. We've helped innovators obtain and manage thousands of patents and trademarks 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. 
Integrated Legal Counsel
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.
DIY Provisional Patent Application Workshops
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.
