We are a different kind of patent agent.

At Patents Integrated, we aren’t patent attorneys. We aren’t business consultants. We aren’t product developers. We’re more than that, pulling from multiple disciplines to create IP strategies that not only protect our clients’ innovations but fully support their long-term business growth plans.


Intellectual property isn’t one-size-fits-all. Every business is different, with different needs, challenges and goals. Our team has deep experience across the entire innovation lifecycle – from product development, to IP portfolio management, patent monetization and beyond – because we’ve been there ourselves, working with everything from startups, to public companies, to government entities, law firms and more.

We bridge the gaps between business leaders, technologists and legal professionals

We ensure that your company’s patent strategy is fully supporting your corporate growth plans through a variety of service offerings including:

  • In-house IP training seminars
  • Negotiation assistance in discussions involving IP, especially in Asia (native fluency in Japanese and English)
  • “Patent Troll” defense strategies
