Industries / Hardware + Software

It’s not surprising that computer technology accounts for more recent patent applications than any other sector tracked by the World Intellectual Property Organization. With the ubiquity of smartphones, tablets and the application of computer technology in everything from automobiles to household appliances, we know this will continue to accelerate and are uniquely positioned to work in this fast-moving field.

Our clients range from startups with great ideas and a strong business plan to large, global corporations. Our lawyers have the technical backgrounds to ensure that your most important assets have adequate protection in the US and around the world. We invite you to learn more about our team and how we can help to protect and monetize your hardware and software technology.
