Seldom do you find a lawyer who can translate all the legaleze into the English language and give you the nuances to boot. Steve can summarize documents so the client understands the purpose and best next steps. He is extremely knowledgeable with patent and trademarks and actually has taught us how to write! He is totally client focused and always thinking about how to save steps and money. Steve is an intregal part of our business and company family.

Stephen Scherrer is more than an attorney. In the process of protecting our intellectual property, were were introduced to Stephen. He quickly showed his understanding of intellectual property law, which you expect when you hire legal advisers, but he has demonstrated an almost uncanny amount of intellect in the technology areas of asset protection, security, encryption, authentication, telecommunications and data leak prevention. He has been an ally in the process of property protection.
I would highly recommend Steven Scherrer as legal adviser and counsel for protecting your ideas, methods and inventions.

I wholeheartedly endorse Stephen Scherrer. He makes what can be a complex and confusing area of law understandable and accessible for his clients. Whenever I have client with an intellectual property issue I refer them to Steve because I know that they will receive outstanding service.

I worked with Steve at McDermott Will & Emery for almost 10 years. We were partners together in the intellectual property group and worked together to manage a number of client matters. Steve practices law the way I was taught to practice: with sharp technical knowledge; practical business sense; and with the client's best interests in mind at all times. Although we are no longer partners, I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Steve.
