About Jeffrey

Learn Jeffrey’s areas of practice.

Originally the founder of prominent Denver patent law firm Rocky Mountain Patent, he merged the practice with a major national law firm in 2018 following his successful exit in a separate medical device firm. He later invested and became involved in several other Colorado startups and the Rare Air Venture Studio.

Jeff brings a wealth of varied experience to his practice of law. Jeff was a delegate at the Harvard China-India Development & Relations Symposium. ColoradoBiz Magazine named Jeff one of the 25 "Most Influential Young Professionals in Colorado.” He was also a finalist for the Denver Post's "Colorado Innovator of the Year" and "Denver Trailblazer" awards. In 2017, Denver Mayor Michael Hancock invited Jeff to participate in Denver's official trade delegation to South Africa and Kenya. Jeff also served as the President of TiE Denver, a member of the Denver Downtown Partnership Economic Development Council, and has been a representative on multiple boards in the years since.

Jeff attended Northwestern University, graduating with degrees in Engineering and Economics in 2004. He subsequently earned his JD and masters degrees in International Studies and Medical Informatics. Jeff separately studied economics at Harvard University.

Jeff and his team now selectively work with a limited number of promising clients via Schell IP.

Great work
It’s very different than other patent law firms. Jeff is a successful founder and can relate better than some of the other firms that we interviewed

Very Helpful
If you’re forming an early stage company with a product innovation, Jeff should be the first call you make. No one else has his combo of running businesses and practicing patents

Excellent Healthcare Attorney
Jeff Schell is very competent and knowledgable about healthcare law issues. He assisted our effort to form a not for profit health information corporation and advised us above and beyond that which was necessary. I highly recommend Jeff.

Intellectual property Attorney | Aug 04
Relationship: Fellow lawyer in community
"Jeff is a great IP and patent attorney but what sets him apart from most patent attorneys is that he approaches every matter from a business owner's perspective. His experience as a business owner and operator infuses his legal perspective with real-world, functional advice that most lawyers ignore."
