What We Do

Patent GC offers a full range of patent and trademark legal services to our clients through a team of seasoned former in-house IP attorneys available on an on-demand basis at a fraction of the cost of either hiring a full-time in-house IP lawyer or relying exclusively on traditional law firm counsel. Our attorneys provide business-oriented legal advice – in a way that traditional law firm lawyers typically do not – as a result of their significant in-house counsel experience at one or more top technology companies. Contact us to speak with one of our on-demand IP attorneys.
