Able to work as one, we give you the best of each lawyer: the experience in high-profile, bet-the-company intellectual property disputes; the experience of sophisticated, accomplished patent prosecutors, even former Patent Trademark Office Examiners; the substantive knowledge of accomplished law professors; the practical federal-court experience of former judicial law clerks; the oral advocacy of skilled and renowned communicators; the technical expertise of trained scientists and engineers.
