Trusted Philadelphia Intellectual Property Lawyers

This an outstanding intellectual property law firm. I have worked closely with them in the past on several patents in areas that were quite obscure and they were ultimately successful in obtaining broad patent coverage in all cases. I was particularly impressed with the basic science background as well as legal skills of Alex Sluzas, who was quickly able to assimilate an entirely new (to him) area of science and integrate that knowledge into articulate legal arguments in successfully realizing our IP goals.

Navigating the patent process is time-consuming, filled with technical details, and buried in paperwork specific to the United States Patent and Trademark Office. Don’t be discouraged.

Paul and Paul is a great firm to work with, especially if you’re an entrepreneur. I’ve been working with the firm since 2013 and have two patents to show. What I love most about Paul and Paul is that they are a boutique firm. The level of attention I get from my attorney, Mr. Sluzas, is likely not found at a larger firm. My questions and concerns are typically answered within hours of my request, if not sooner. If you’re looking for a firm that is experienced, respected and responsive to your needs, I suggest Paul and Paul.

Their work is excellent and we’ve been very satisfied and impressed.
