Intellectual property

At TLP we practice law grounded with business and product experiences – We believe the practice of law to be a business tool and must provide value-add to a business.

Within TLP’s Intellectual Property services division, all of our attorneys, agents, and technologists have business experience, engineering experience, or both before practicing law or aiding in the practice of law. We have a unique blend of legal, business, and engineering experiences to aid our clients in the context of their business, markets, and products.

Our team members have engineering experiences in product development and business management in high technology and chemical areas.  We have worked in a range of capacities from as engineers to Vice President in various companies, including Fortune 100 companies.  We have developed product lines and products ranging from semiconductor processing through board level products to high-end mainframe computers and networking products including test and software development.  We have developed products in various markets including storage, computing, networking, and consumer electronics.

Corporate, Business Transactions, Employment Services

Our attorneys have worked as in-house counsel at Fortune-100 companies through start-ups and as outside counsel.  Our team provides the flexibility supporting existing processes in any size company as well as establishing new processes

We look for trends – Our team is just as comfortable reading marketing and business reports as we are reading case laws.  We look for trends in technology, products, product lines, markets, and the law.  We prosecute patents considering these trends to help maximize the value of our client’s patents and patent portfolio.
