The Patent Counsel Law Group

Specializing in Protection, Management and Monetization of Intellectual Property Portfolios


Our difference is in the inside perspective

Having worked in large law firms, in-house and engineering leadership positions, we understand the complexities of your business: You won't need to explain. We formulate IP strategy that is aligned with your business objectives. Our clients depend on our economic and business acumen to guide their decisions in:
  • mininng patentable inventions
  • full range of patent prosecution work
  • freedom to operate on all stages of product development
  • forming strategic alliances
  • in-bound and out-bound licensing 
  • directing IP portfolio development 
  • mitigating risk of litigation 
  • educating engineering teams
  • achieving maximum IP portfolio utilizaton in monetization 

We speak your language

We pride ourselves on not only knowing IP law, but also understanding our clients' technologies. Our technical expertise in Physics, Electronics and Mechanical Engineering allows us to work effectively with engineering clients on all organizational levels. What makes us different is the unique combinaton of more than 20 years in law and senior corporate positions at large hightech companies. This experience informs everything we do and leads to a more practical, efficient, and business-focused approach to IP.

Our attention is focused on your needs


The volume of your work may be overwhelming, but it doesn't add up to support an additional attorney in the office. A patent attorney coming to your office if only one day a week can make a difference in your workload and bottom line results. We are accessible, proactive, and efficient. Our counsel is frank and direct. We advise on complex IP issues in a clear and understandable way. Our turn-around time is short, we respond to all calls promptly and keep you continuously apprised on matters that we handle for you.

We accommodate your budget

We are sensitive to the budget considerations of growing companies. Our hourly rates are significantly (30-50%) lower than those of IP boutiques for similar legal services. We maintain low rates by keeping our overhead low. Another distinguishing PCLG feature is that we offer individualized attention of a large law firm patent attorney. While we handle matters cost-effectively, we do not sacrifice quality and provide our clients with the highest level of legal expertise.
