Attempting to put into words the passion, integrity, commitment and knowledge demonstrated by Patrick does not do justice to the superb work and guidance that he has shown me and my partner throughout our journey, from the patent filing process to the steep learning curve of bringing a medical device to market. Patrick is an unending source of support, resources and intellect coupled with a constant enthusiasm and drive to succeed. I feel honored to have Patrick as our patent lawyer and am ever-grateful of his dedication to our goals. From the onset, Patrick makes your journey his own and completes every milestone, both joyous and difficult, with you. His genuine persona fosters mutual trust and respect among all stakeholders, thus driving the success of any project. I would recommend Patrickâ€™s services to any individual searching for a dedicated, resourceful and trustful patent lawyer. And I remain truly thankful that I can depend on Patrick for all of my IP needs.

Please note that Patrick has not asked me to write this recommendation; nor have I written many at all in total. I am doing so on my own because I am so happy with Patrick and his work. I started working w/ Patrick a year ago, and have been working with him consistently ever since. When you hire Patrick to help you file your patent(s), you end up finding out that you've also got someone who, without asking, helps you develop a strategic long-term plan for your intellectual property portfolio. If you are not a large business, you also find that Patrick provides direction you didn't know you needed to search for. Patrick is capable of deep critical thinking in areas outside of legal, and you will be impressed with how quickly he understands the material you need to protect. Patrick is able to provide creative insights which can serve as inspiration to your future product development. When I have an important question on anything, I know Patrick is a great person to talk to, and if he doesn't have my answer, he knows the person that does. For your legal needs, you can consider Patrick one of the most important contacts you will ever need.

When I decided that it was time to file my patent, I chose to consult Patrick first because his website articulated the vision of what I wanted my ideal patent attorney to be. As an outsider to the world of intellectual property, I had no other basis on which to make that decision. To my delight, he was able to assimilate the complex mechanical and anatomic details of my medical device during our initial consultation. Now a year and a half later I can further say that Patrick's drive, integrity, and passion for his craft are evident in every interaction that I have had with him - without exception. I have had the opportunity to network with a number of Patrick's other clients since I filed with him, and whether they are newbie's like myself or seasoned businessmen, we all have the same admiration of Patrick's approach to our unique problems. What makes Patrick special is that he combines creativity and enthusiasm with a knowledge of the world of IP that is as detailed as it is vast. If this is your first time filing a patent, I can assure you that this journey will be both difficult and exhilarating, but Patrick will be there for you every step of the way. If this is your 50th patent, Patrick will suggest practical improvements to your IP strategy that will make you wish that you had hired him earlier. There is simply no better person to take your next big idea to.

As a startup company on a limited budget, we turned to Patrick to help us understand and pursue a complex intellectual property portfolio consisting of over a dozen patent applications that we intended to license from another entity. Patrick helped clarify the purpose of each application and explained the ongoing prosecution of several of the applications. Patrick also advised us on the applicability of several competing pieces of intellectual property. This knowledge strengthened our position and allowed us to successfully negotiate a license agreement that both we as the licensee and the licensor were happy with.
Patrick's efficient work kept our costs down and he was always accessible by phone or email. Patrick also made it a point to work with us in person on several occasions to ensure we had the guidance we needed. As our company continues to work with complex intellectual property issues we will continue to seek Patrick’s guidance. We highly recommend Patrick Richards to anyone in need of an intellectual property attorney.
