Background in Technology, Specializing in Strategy
We are business-savvy tech geeks. AEON Law attorneys come from a variety of technology backgrounds. We have practical experience in the technologies we represent and understand how technology can solve problems.
In addition, we have worked in legal settings from startup general counsel to patent departments of established technology companies. Some of our attorneys are even inventors on patents. We are able to scope technology early in the process and determine what developments are lasting and worth spending effort and money to protect.
We Know Crypto
While some firms are struggling to get a handle on crypto, AEON Law attorneys have long been speaking, writing, and advising clients in the field. We know that a new platform might include hundreds of inventions, and we identify what is valuable and protectable and efficiently obtain broad patent coverage. Once we have helped our clients identify protectable inventions, we craft patent applications carefully to overcome likely challenges before the USPTO and foreign patent offices and ultimately provide broad enforcement capabilities.
With our experience working in house, including for publicly-traded companies, we understand not only the technological developments but also the potential regulatory challenges.
International Reach and Predictable Fees
We know our clients’ strategies often reach well outside the U.S. We have a dedicated coordinator of international intellectual property along with longstanding relationships with international attorneys for patent protection anywhere in the world where your company does business.
We provide this strategic analysis with an eye toward the bottom line. Our flat fee structure provides predictability that is so important in the often-volatile world of technology. With our creative and common sense approach, AEON Law is sought out and respected by everyone from new inventors to C-suite executives. From day one, our goal is to help our clients make smart business decisions.
Even with our success in securing IP protection for our high tech clients, some of our greatest victories are not high-profile transactions but are instances when our work keeps conflicts from escalating. When a potential infringer steps away because the strength of a client’s patent before it is necessary to elevate the client’s enforcement efforts, that is one of the greatest victories we could achieve.
Let's work together.
