About Patents Integrated
We’re more than just patent professionals.
We understand the innovation lifecycle, from innovation, IP portfolio development and transactions, to patent assertion and monetization, because we’ve been there. We’ve worked in a variety of settings, ranging from start-ups, publicly-traded companies, government entities, law firms, and even a patent assertion entity. We speak the language of business leaders, technologists, and legal professionals—and we can help interpret between these groups to make sure they are all working together to grow your company.
What we do
We specialize in creating and implementing practical action plans to ensure a company’s business objectives are in alignment with their technology development and intellectual property (IP) strategies. Leveraging our in-depth experience throughout the innovation lifecycle, we are uniquely able to provide insights to help your company to grow and succeed.
We provide business leaders with peace of mind.
We achieve this goal by ensuring that your company’s patent strategy is fully supporting your corporate growth plans through a variety of service offerings:
- In-house IP training seminars
- Negotiation assistance in discussions involving IP, especially in Asia (native fluency in Japanese and English)
- “Patent Troll” defense strategies
