Getting Started

Our Work

Direct to Consumer Product Marketing

This was a classic case of the American Dream starting off with a shoe-string budget, a bright idea, and a lot of sweat and clever execution to make it happen. We initially provided a cost effective, yet very high quality patent application that enabled him to initially protect his pet care product idea (a gentile/safe grinding pet nail trimmer) with enough left over for effective product development and marketing.  Along with our intense guidance and consultations, the product became a blockbuster known across the world, yet despite our marketing success, the USPTO rejected all his patent claims, and after months of back-and-forth prosecution, it looked like an impossible dead-end.  A large predatory marketing company began knocking off his winning product, however, with no awarded patent, he could do nothing about it.  With millions of dollars at stake, we were charged to redouble our efforts and win the patent at all costs within two months. Then, we conjured very creative and clever claims and a sophisticated legal argument strategy, which coupled with a very intense (and tactful) direct negotiations with the Examiner ultimately, and very quickly, resulted in winning the patent.  The inventor made millions and the product has revolutionized the pet nail trimming industry. An even larger global marketing company ended up buying out the patent and his company, and the rest is marketing history....

Funding/Deal Broker

A serial inventor and avid entrepreneur invents many innovative ideas, yet only has enough resources to bring one to market.  After we won patent protection he could not find commercial interest and gave up on it.  He decided to focus on his efforts the other innovations.  Based on our intuition, we believed this product could have a significant market and be highly lucrative to the right kind of product launching firm.  So, we took the initiative to ask for review by the right type of marketing firm in our network.  This particular firm was unique in that it has high risk money and an in-house product design and marketing team to bring products to directly market very quickly, with high impact and results.  They were very interested after we articulated the potential; however, the structure of the deal was in question especially since the inventor wanted much greater control, participation, and compensation than the firm was initially willing to offer.  Based on building a basis of mutual trust along with skilled, highly nuanced negotiations, we were able to strike a lucrative deal that made both sides very happyThe product was successfully redesigned and re-purposed for a more optimal market.

Infringement Defense

Fortune 500 companies constantly launch new products and implement new technologies, which not only need protection, yet, almost more importantly, must not result in patent infringement- that can be a product/service roll-out "show stopper". For some of the largest corporations in America, we helped them avoid very costly infringement lawsuit.

High-Tech Start-up

A Hi-Tech Start-up in the fab-less semiconductor chip space must file many patents on limited budget to support venture funding.  They received very limited Series A funding, which was just enough to cover their burn-rate on opening four offices, R&D, and product launch, yet very little was available for patent portfolio protection of their IP.  However, as a prerequisite to the Venture Partner (i.e., the critical Series B funding), their survival depended on first achieving broad patent protection of their IP.  When first tasked to provide a solution to their difficult situation we performed an IP portfolio assessment and triaged their IP into various categories of priority and quality requirements relative to business and Venture Capital (VC) goals.  Once this IP assessment was completed we then applied our proprietary "right-sizing" approach to most effectively allocate resources to optimally align their real-world patent/product protection needs with their limited budget, thereby striking the optimal balance between contradicting requirements of a broad patent portfolio with strong core IP protection on a limited fiscal budget.  As a result, they were able to achieve nine patent application filings that later were won as full patents, which was enough to get life saving Series B VC funding.  In our experience, this successful approach is very effective for most hi-tech start-up situations.
