Our Difference

We apply our decades of experience in IP and business to identify the right IP strategy for your company. We don’t just dive into the technical aspects of your innovative product or technology to generate a patent application for you. Instead, we start with understanding your customers and how your competitors will react to your success.

Our goal is to make it cheaper for someone who desires access to your innovation and customers to go through you than around you.

As IP Strategy consultants, we make our living helping you attain your business goals by providing IP solutions that allow you to achieve your desired revenue or exit. Only then do we start down the patent path.

In short, we won’t tell you to spend money on IP just because you can, but because you should.

Here are a few services we provide for our clients:

IP Strategy Consulting

We work with companies to align IP Strategy with desired innovation outcomes.  

Chief/Senior In-House IP Counsel on a Part Time Basis

Patent Application Drafting Prosecution/Outside Counsel Management IP and Business Agreements

Hear What Our Clients Say

“I have worked with lots of attorneys over the years, and Jackie’s practice model is unique. I always feel she is on my team when working with her, and that she is looking at risks that are real for my business, not risks that are so remote that they are largely irrelevant to my company today. Her advice is practical and pragmatic. If IP is important to your company’s future, you need Jackie on your team.”

I have seen tangible results in those companies and she’s a true friend of the entrepreneur.”
