Introduction: Hello. Chances are you came to Thumbtack looking for an IP attorney (patents, trademarks and copyrights) because neither you nor anyone you know has ever had a need for an IP attorney. This isn’t uncommon: most people just do not have a need for an IP attorney. Consider yourself one of the creative few. Perhaps, you did not know where to begin in your search and are a bit unsure of how to pick the best attorney for you IP legal needs. In this, you are not alone.
Well, you are in luck. You found us, Leyendecker & Lemire. Over the years, our attorneys have filed hundreds of patent, trademark and copyright applications securing valuable legal rights for our clients. We have satisfactorily resolved numerous IP related disputes for our clients as well.
Perhaps the Firm’s biggest strength is our understanding of entrepreneurial individuals and small companies, and our ability to advise you not only on how best to protect your intellectual property, but also do so within your budget constraints. We are not here to merely get you a patent, a trademark, or a copyright, but to get you a patent, a copyright, or a trademark that best suits your specific needs and future goals. When I left Big Law and started my firm 20 years ago, I did so with an overarching principal: to provide the same quality of IP legal services to individuals and small businesses that is usually reserved for Fortune 500 companies while taking into account the unique concerns and considerations of the entrepreneur and small business.
Low cost patent and trademark law firms, also referred to has patent mills and trademark mills, see you largely as a source to wring some quick revenue and churn so they can move onto the next victim. They are not not particularly concerned about the quality of the work product they provide to you. Large national law firms, like the one I was employed before venturing out on my own, do great legal work, but you pay a stiff premium for fancy downtown offices and bloated support staff that offer little to advance your interests. Further, large firms often don’t like working with small clients, and often do so only as fill between jobs for their large corporate clients.
Ultimately, however, a choice of an attorney is a very personal one. In my opinion, you should never retain an attorney with whom you are uncomfortable. Accordingly, we offer all prospective clients a FREE ½ CONSULTATION at our office or over the phone. You can get to know us, and we can offer you specific advice pertaining to your IP legal matter. Do not hesitate or contact me, and we look forward to working with you.
