What Sets Us Apart

Deep Technology Expertise
All PLW attorneys and professional staff have deep backgrounds in the technologies they work with. Most have degrees in their specialty, years working in particular technologies, or both. This expertise allows them to quickly understand your technologies and products. From here, they are able to develop an optimal patent strategy to provide your company with the protection it needs.
High Rate of Patent Approvals
We are proud of our track record in securing patent approvals for clients. We begin with an assessment of the chances for approval and work closely with the company and inventors to chart a path to success. Conversely, if we feel a patent for a product or invention is unlikely to be allowed, we attempt to find ways to overcome issues that could hinder patentability.
Understand Needs of Large Companies & Startups
Budgets and needs of large companies and startups vary widely. Having worked with companies throughout their lifecycles, we craft patent strategies and approaches that meet the requirements for every stage of company growth.
Brand Name Clients
We have been honored to work with a wide range of companies in a host of industries. These companies include: Google, Symantec, Ricoh LTD., Toyota, Progress Software Corporation, Staples, Dialpad, Veritas, Healthcatalyst, OpenX, Corel, Pluralsight, ipsy, and Automation Anywhere. Using our expertise in worldwide intellectual property, we help companies craft intellectual property protection strategies that maximized protection at a reasonable price.
Easy to Work With
We work hard to deliver the type and level of service clients need. Every assignment begins by learning the service, procedural and working requirements of each client and customizing our approach accordingly. Inventors, engineers and entrepreneurs appreciate our understanding of technologies and our ability to work alongside them to get their products patented.
Deep Silicon Valley Roots
We have deep roots in Silicon Valley. We know how to work effectively within the ecosystem of venture capitalists, entrepreneurs, corporate lawyers, and established titans. Not only have many of our attorneys worked at prominent Valley firms, but our office is in the heart of Silicon Valley.
