We have prepared hundreds of patents for a wide range of inventions, including consumer products (tools, home and garden, toys, etc.); construction tools and equipment; flight and automotive systems; and also including software and business methods, especially using mobile apps.  We work with primarily small businesses and solo product developers, especially selling online via Amazon and similar e-commerce sites.

We have extensive international experience, and assist an international client base in protecting their intellectual property throughout the world, especially including Europe, Australia, Canada, China, and Hong Kong, and also including other countries, such as Japan, Korea, Israel, India, and Russia. We can assist you in developing an international protection strategy to protect your invention throughout the world.
