Helping Tech Companies Protect their Proprietary Technology to Create a Competitive Advantage, Attract Investors, and Increase Company Valuation.

Inventions are critical for technology companies to maintain a competitive advantage.  New competitors can "come out of nowhere" with a product that steals market share from well-established companies.  Without a strong patent portfolio, your company is at risk of lost revenue - or worse - due to these competing products.

To build a valuable portfolio of patents, your company needs a system for identifying, evaluating, and protecting the most valuable inventions developed by your team.

Steve is an excellent intellectual property lawyer.  We've worked with Steve over the past twenty years, and continue to work with him.  He is a quick study - in the course of just one meeting, he understands the core concepts of what we are trying to protect. Steve is easy and fun to work with!
