We give inventors the legal guidance to turn novel ideas into industry-changing inventions. Our clients are well established in their fields, often inspired by a problem in their industry and a strong desire to solve it.

If you didn’t believe that your invention could make a difference, you wouldn’t have come this far.
What is a patent attorney?
A patent attorney is a type of lawyer who helps to protect inventors from someone else making, using or selling their invention. As a supplementary service, we can also register their trademarks, including a company name, tagline and logo.
What if I don’t have a patent?
It is simple. Someone could take your idea and the potential for profit that came along with it. Another risk is the perception of your invention. Without a patent-pending designation, you may not be taken seriously. Your breakthrough thoughts could be ignored or not considered valid.
What can be patented?
In legal terms, you can apply for a patent for “any new and useful process, machine, manufacture, or composition of matter, or any new and useful improvement thereof.”
