Founding Partner: Kathryn V. Chelini
I am a client-focused registered patent attorney with diverse legal experience.  
I have concentrated on domestic and international patent preparation and prosecution in the areas of computer hardware and software, medical devices, business methods, mechanical and electromechanical devices, and consumer products.  I also have extensive experience with all aspects of trademark law including searches, acquisition, opposition proceedings and consent agreements, as well as copyright registration and infringement analysis.  In addition to my transactional work, I have also participated in patent, trademark and trade secret litigation including pre-filing due diligence, claim construction analysis and Markman briefing, discovery requests and responses, and expert witness preparation.  

Prior to becoming an attorney, I was a results-oriented engineering manager in both established companies and in nascent start-ups.  I understand the importance of protecting and commercializing intellectual property while simultaneously addressing cost and schedule requirements. 

I pride myself on my efficiency and low overhead costs which allow me to pass my savings along to my clients and offer high quality service at a substantial cost savings in comparison to large firms.
