One of the main features of our law practice is that we operate without most of the overhead associated with traditional law practices. Accordingly, we are able to charge substantially lower fees for a broad range of intellectual property, business, commercial and other legal work, performed by very experienced lawyers and other professionals, by comparison with other law firms. Our fees generally average in the range of 40% to 60% less than fees charged for work of comparable quality by traditional law firms, using comparably experienced attorneys. We also welcome, and are very willing to enter into, "alternative" fee arrangements that are customized for our clients' particular business and financial situations and needs, and routinely offer and enter into many different types of such arrangements, including fixed fee, deferred fee and capped fee arrangements, where the client's situation would be best served by them.
We offer exceptionally experienced and highly capable attorneys that are able to provide quality legal services on a par with those provided by traditional, "big firm" law practices, but because of our much lower fee structure, we can provide these services with much greater cost-effectiveness. We provide comprehensive legal services in U.S. and international patent, trademark, copyright, trade secret and other intellectual property, and have the capability of serving the entire business, corporate and commercial legal services needs of clients, including those seeking international, as well as US, intellectual property protection for their technologies and businesses. Our attorneys have many years of experience in the procuring, maintenance and enforcement of all types of patents, and are particularly focused on serving clients in the biotechnology, pharmaceutical, medical devices and diagnostics, and general life sciences fields. We have extensive expertise in patent searching and landscape analysis, freedom to operate and patentability opinions, and in licensing, partnering, acquisitions and other transactions. We also routinely handle related matters including contract dispute resolution, intellectual property appeals, and litigation such as patent enforcement and infringement actions.
We also provide general business and corporate legal counseling and consulting services, such as business formation, set-up, structuring, assistance with financing, and due diligence for acquisitions, technology transfer, joint venture and licensing transactions. We have expert knowledge in intellectual property portfolio and patent estate evaluation, assessment, management and leveraging of assets, as well as considerable experience in obtaining and enforcing trademarks, service marks and copyrights.
Although our clients span the spectrum from Fortune 100 companies to individuals, we have considerable expertise in assisting emerging, development stage and start up companies and small to medium size businesses, and we focus our practice on working closely with these clients to provide personalized, top quality legal services that are both supportive of their business interests and within budget, time and financing constraints. We believe you will find us uniquely suited to your requirements because of our approach to the practice of law, personalized service designed to serve your business needs, and many years of experience representing all sizes of clients.
