Because we have deep roots in the high-tech industry, we have an organically developed network of highly qualified experts. We add experts to our team on an as-needed basis (when projects require them). These experts join our team through invitations only. They cannot typically be found in internet or social network searches. Yet, they are the most desirable type of experts, who know the most about the technologies and industries in which they are involved. As such, we are exceptionally proud of our team of subject matter experts, and consider it the backbone of our intellectual property consulting services.
Besides the exceptional caliber of our experts, what sets us apart from those who simply provide a database of self-proclaimed intellectual property experts, is that we dive deeply into the specific needs of our clients and stay engaged throughout the entire process. Our team of intellectual property project managers can handle every aspect of a project for our clients and go above and beyond the call of duty to ensure the highest quality of service.
