I help technology companies ​create strong intellectual property portfolios that provide a competitive advantage and protect their most valuable assets from being stolen.

​A strong intellectual property portfolio is critical for technology companies, which rely on innovative ideas to survive. I help companies identify and protect broad ideas that can disrupt their industry and position themselves as a market leader.

​I also help companies implement systems for tracking and evaluating all inventions that assist in creating a diverse intellectual property portfolio.  One that protects the company's core technology and provides defensive protection against overly aggressive competitors.

"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!"

​Chief Information Officer, U.S. Bank

For more than 20 years, I have worked with over 1000 inventors and business leaders – from startups to the largest technology companies in the world, including Intel, HP, Baton Systems, Microsoft, HyperGrid, eBay, Yazaki, SAP, and Zynga.

I love being part of the creative process and helping companies thrive in their marketplace by identifying, developing, and leveraging innovations.  As an entrepreneur myself, I am excited to assist other business leaders in creating a competitive edge in their market, increasing revenue, and positioning the business as a leading innovator.

"After working with numerous attorneys I was fortunate to be introduced to Steve Sponseller.  What a difference – Steve became an integral team member of our technical staff.  He does his homework and possesses the ability to quickly interpret a specific technology or invention in terms of intellectual property value."
