Clients come to me seeking to protect their new products and inventions. Most often, clients are in the very early conceptual and design phase. They are excited about their idea, but they haven't fully thought through important considerations, such as whether their product will profitably meet a market demand; design aesthetic; manufacturability; whether there will be regulatory hurdles to overcome; how to make the product safer, less expensive, higher quality; the scope and power of market adjacent competitors; and other important technical and legal considerations.
Although I'm first and foremost a patent attorney, I also have a mechanical engineering degree and extensive experience in that discipline. Because of my legal and technical background, I'm able to ask important, focused questions that help guide my clients through the things they haven't thought about yet. My questions and guidance helps them to develop better products, to meet a more expansive market, and to have a more legally protectable product.
This is part of my regular dialog and ongoing work with my clients. Like most attorneys, I charge for my time, but clients tell me that the value they receive is far beyond their expectations.
