We Are Lawyer-Scientists
BLANK PATENT Services provides clients with advanced technical and legal expertise. Our world-class training and experience in science and law provides businesses and universities with strategic IP/patent capabilities. We are the conduit that connects technology and law into a seamless thread that protects your intellectual assets.

Intellectual property/patent services demand strong expertise in two radically different disciplines: law and science. Some firms offer the legal acumen. Others distinguish themselves with competence in technical environments. Blank Patent Services is unique insofar as we are accomplished lawyer-scientists. We can speak the language of law and technology and can transition between each with ease and precision.

As lawyer-scientists, we offer our clients a comprehensive blend of services other IP/patent firms must outsource in whole or part to achieve. Our intrinsic ability to perform both legal and technical disciplines, consolidated under one roof, makes us patently unique.
