About us

Our Approach

Our attorneys have a long track record of working alongside remarkable businesses to help them identify, protect and manage their intellectual property. Whether running a brainstorming session to capture the innovations in a new project or supporting a client through a dispute with a competitor, our goal is to make intellectual property work for our clients. We are particularly proud that the great majority of our instructions come through recommendations from existing clients.
