Their varied client base ranges from individuals, engineers and inventors to closely-held businesses and large corporations in the construction, finance, food and beverage, healthcare, manufacturing, marketing, media and entertainment, and pharmaceutical industries.
“Protecting a company’s intellectual property is crucial to its success.
