Our lawyers have undergraduate and graduate degrees in biochemistry, chemistry, chemical engineering, electrical engineering, mechanical engineering and physics. We speak our clients’ languages, which allows us to vigorously and effectively represent them in virtually all areas of technology.

Having shared offices with the inventors and innovators who bring technology to life, we strive to be involved in our clients' overall business strategies to help them more effectively leverage and monetize their IP resources. To that end, we often work closely with our clients to draft and perform IP portfolio analyses for venture capitalists and private offerings, prepare disclosure documentation for public offerings, and evaluate potential litigation risks.
