The firm maintains all prospective client identities and client communications in confidence.

The firm may send you information pertaining to intellectual property related to your communication. Responses such as these should not be considered legal advice as they are not tailored to your specific circumstances and the firm has not taken you as a client. The firm refrains from representing any party prior to the mutual execution of a legal services agreement. Once you have become a client of the firm (by way of the executed legal services agreement), the firm may send you tailored communications that may include, for prospective inventions, an invention disclosure document for the inventor(s) to complete. Due to national and international patent laws, it is crucial that you be aware of critical deadlines or loss of rights that may arise by actions on your part such as a public disclosure, public use and/or placing the invention at issue on sale in the US. Maintaining records and prototypes of your invention may prove helpful in completing the invention disclosure document and such records, articles and electronic files, if any, should be archived by the inventors as evidence of their developmental effort.
