Helping inventors and startups turn ideas into reality
Need help with intellectual property? I am a Silicon Valley patent attorney (patent lawyer) with a strong technical background (PhD, JD),
and a good history of obtaining intellectual property for inventors and startups
(see About, Services, Fields, and Examples).
I am a California attorney (California Bar Association)
and a US patent attorney (US Patent and Trademark Office).
My law office is in Northern California (near San Jose) in the Silicon Valley part of the San Francisco Bay Area.
Patents, trademarks, copyrights, and more
Building a strong patent, trademark, and copyright portfolio
Looking for good quality work at fair prices? To get a good patent, you need to start with a well-written patent application.
This requires carefully reasoned patent descriptions, claims, and drawings. It also requires a well-thought-out strategy that takes your technology,
business interests, budget, and competitive situation into account.
Similar considerations are important for trademarks and other types of intellectual property as well.
In addition to patents, trademarks, and copyrights, I also do other types of intellectual property related legal work,
including patent search,
infringement/non-infringement opinion letters, and licensing contracts.
