  • Hanno Ingbert Rittner

    Bill is the consummate patent attorney whom I hold in highest regard for his progress and professional success - which I watched grow first hand. I first met Bill as a law firm associate where I supervised his always meticulous work - because of that attention to detail, he also gets the big picture, and translates those details into meaningful, common sense help for clients. He understands the importance of every step of the legal process as well as how it fits into a client's business; as a further testament to both his character and professional judgment, Bill never lets a detail slide if he feels he does not fully understand its import. Since working with Bill, my legal practice focus evolved to Trademarks exclusively, and so I can without hesitation say that should I need a patent application prepared I would trust Bill with all mine. On a personal note, I always thanked him for introducing me to the enjoyment of shooting skeet. Bill's an all around guy and family man.
