We ensure that our computers and electronics clients have the legal counsel needed to be competitive and compliant. Our team of lawyers and patent agents have identified, commercialized and defended IP, copyrights and trademarks for Fortune 100 in the US and FTSE 250 companies at home and abroad.

We have expertise with technologies like advanced circuitry, digital cameras and imaging systems – all important components in a larger shift toward the Internet of Things (IoT) – and several of our lawyers and patent agents hold their own patents in these fields. We have depth of experience in the semiconductor space, including microprocessors, graphics processors and other chipsets.

When our clients expand internationally, we help with tax planning, regulatory compliance, establishment of new entities and compliance with local laws for employment, benefit plans and company policies. We have also managed complex international IP portfolios and have guided companies in procuring, monetizing and defending patents in the US and Europe.
