We know our practice model is not for everyone. In short, if you are looking to outsource your IP efforts to a law firm, we are not the counselors for you. To ensure that our clients not only create, but also maximize their company's return on innovation investment, it is imperative that we are integrated onto the company's relevant business and technical teams. Prior to engagement, we fully vet potential new clients ensure there is a great fit. If we believe you would be better served by a more traditional IP legal service model, we can refer you to counsel we trust.
At the start of a typical client engagement, we spend considerable time with the client's business teams to get to know the business and competitive landscape, just as any new team member would similarly on-boarded into a new role. For many clients, our main point of contact initially is the C-Suite. As we gain more knowledge about the business and its competitive challenges, we can operate more independently. However, never do we function without the regular involvement of senior members of our clients' business teams and, ultimately, their C-Suite.
