We learned IP law from the best in the business. But after spending years at two of the largest and oldest intellectual property specialty firms in the world, we were ready to do something different. We changed the traditional law firm model by eliminating minimum billable hours targets for our attorneys, which turn lawyers into billing machines. Then we eliminated private offices and created a shared workspace to foster transparency and firm-wide collaboration on our clients’ matters. As a result, we’re better able to focus on our clients’ interests and take them on as our own. Our goal is to provide the best possible counsel at reasonable cost.
