While best known for our record of litigation success, we also excel in the strategic aspects of intellectual property. We are widely regarded as a leader in IP procurement, post-grant proceedings, IP opinions and investigations, global portfolio management, IP development and licensing, M&A support, and design rights.
In addition to being exceptional lawyers, our attorneys have degrees in technical fields such as electrical, computer, chemical and mechanical engineering, and chemistry and biochemistry. Many have advanced degrees and almost all are registered to practice before the Patent and Trademark Office. Many also have prior work experience in technology and IP-focused industries. Our clients know that – in addition to technical and legal knowledge – our attorneys offer exceptional business sense. We focus on learning and understanding our clients’ businesses, and providing solutions that are often innovative and always tailored to clients’ strategies, priorities, and needs.
Perhaps most importantly, we emphasize responsiveness and building long-term relationships with our clients. We have earned the longstanding trust of our clients, as demonstrated by our exceptional level of client retention. Some have been with us since the day we opened our doors in 1988. Speaking of retention, we are also proud that more than 70 percent of our attorneys have spent their entire careers at our firm.
McAndrews is driven by a mission that has not changed since our firm was founded: To deliver best-in-class, highly effective and efficient IP legal expertise, as well as extraordinary, personalized service.
