Innovation is the backbone of any technology business attempting to compete in the modern competitive world.  For these business, ideas are assets that need to be protected and typically these ideas are inventions that qualify for patent protection.  Securing patent protection for these inventions prevents others from appropriating these ideas, which may be critical to the success of the technology business.  As such, it is important to select patent attorneys who understand your technology, are highly experienced in patent law, and will partner with you to make sure that your patent filings and prosecution capture the most of your ideas so as to maximize their value as assets.

Our team of patent attorneys are all ex-practicing engineers with degrees in Chemistry, Biological Science, Electrical Engineering, Mechanical Engineering, Petroleum Engineering, Computer Engineering, and Computer Science.  Some have graduate degrees in Electrical Engineering and all have worked as engineers or scientists (prior to attending law school) at nationally known companies such as Gas Research Institute, Motorola Inc., Bell Northern Research, U.S. Navy, Crown Zellerbach, Blue Cross of California, Chevron, Alcatel-Lucent, Abbott labs, and Hughes Aircraft Company.
