Robert Atkins has been our primary intellectual property attorney for over a year. His office manages our patent portfolio and has filed several new US patents, continuations, and international patents on our behalf. Their work included writing, developing illustrations, and handling office actions and the general prosecution. In addition, Mr. Atkins advises us on our intellectual property strategy, has provided a ‘freedom to operate’ analysis based on competing products and patents, and has assisted us in drafting and reviewing non-disclosure agreements and other important contracts. Mr. Atkins and his team are always quick to respond to our business needs. Our company has tremendously benefited from Mr. Atkins’s experience in patent law and licensing and we have appreciated their integrity and commitment to quality service.
I highly recommend Robert Atkins.
