  • Startup business management at multiple Silicon Valley technology startups in the publishing and digital advertising space;
  • A passion for starting and scaling new businesses.

A Full Cycle of Experience

In addition to legal experience, specializing in patents and licensing, Robert McConnell also has a particular affinity for building start-ups from the ground up. While some businesses may need to seek out more than one top professional to help them get started, Robert eliminates this need by offering a full suite of consultation and guidance.

Patents

Obtaining a patent is one of the foremost ways to protect intellectual property, but the process can be tedious. McConnell Law Firm has extensive experience in the full cycle of the patent process, which is highly useful for cannabis companies looking to build around a new product.

Trademarks

Another necessity in protecting your business, trademarks are also a part of the building process that can require a lot of legwork. Trademarks are meant to protect your new and valuable brand — an important element of success, particularly within the complex cannabis space. McConnell Law Firm gives its clients peace of mind by removing the stress from the process.

Intellectual Property

Most start-ups are built on a unique idea or a solution to a problem. Protecting those ideas are paramount to success, which is why having a strategist on your side to implement the patent and/or trademark process is so helpful. Thoughtful and thorough intellectual property protection in a supremely competitive, cutthroat industry will set your business apart.

Excellent Service
Robert is Highly recommended. He provided sound counsel that helps with intellectual property matters. What is best about Robert is that he provides value to you as a client. He is humble and down to earth. He knows what he is competent at, and what he is not competent at, and sticks to his competencies to provide maximum value to his clients. Highly Recommended! Would use Robert again.

Knowledgeable, professional, consistent
I cannot say enough good things about my experiences (plural) with McConnell Law Firm. Robert is both knowledgeable and practical. He has always been responsive, prompt, and clear in our communications. I’ve been impressed with his level-headedness and his firm, reasonable, yet insistent advocacy for me during some tricky negotiations. Robert has provided me with consistently strong, smart legal advice while at the same time being friendly and down-to-earth. He is my go-to attorney, and it’s always a pleasure to confidently recommend him to others.

This sanction means the attorney lost his or her license to practice law for a period of time. The attorney typically returns to practicing law when the suspension expires.

Robert's comment: “Actual discipline occurred in 2004 based on a criminal conviction in 2003. I completed the California State Bar's diversion program successfully and the 2008 date reflects that completion. I've been clean and sober for 15+ years now.”

updated on 08/09/2019

This means the attorney temporarily lost his or her license to practice law while the State investigates whether the attorney should be disciplined. The suspension typically expires when the investigation is resolved.

Robert's comment: “See above.”
