Solid IP Attorney to Establish your Brand
I hired Igor and his partner to help establish our brand's trademarks during the early stages of my company. They were solid and efficient in their advice and process. In my case, it was important to establish solid trademarks because I work in the IP protection space, so it wouldn't do to have an embarrassing conflict over trademark infringement. At the end of the process, we achieved US and international registrations for both our company and second tier - product level trademarks. We did not even have to compromise on the brand message by inventing some abstract neologism. People complement us on our brand because it says what we do, which is a nice place to be. Igor & team are a solid investment for small businesses and tech companies establishing their brand. I highly recommend them.

I had had a pleasure of working with Igor in 2017 - 2018 when we were put in a rather unpleasant situation with a patent troll. Igor was to the point, always very prompt, honest and extremely efficient. Thanks to his top-notch expertise and superbly professional actions we were able to resolve the issue efficiently. I would undoubtedly recommend Igor to anyone who is looking for not only a high-flying but also decent litigator.

Excellent Patent Lawyer with Flexible Hours
Our group represents many companies. As a result of the various last minute legal issues that arise - its important to get immediate advice. Its not easy finding a competent, professional lawyer who will respond out of business hours. We tried Igor for our first start up company and years later he has represented us on several projects.

Extraordinary Attorney
Have a patent issue or question? Igor is the person to call. You won't find a more honest, straight forward, knowledgable individual. Igor will provide, if necessary, explainations in laymen's terms, however, his level of expertise is beyond measure.

Igor Shoiket is a great attorney !
I had a very complex patent issue, a medical device which was originally patented in Australia, which was being assigned to an American owner, that needed to have patents filed for it in the US, EU, China and India. We had a limited budget, and a short timeframe, so this needed to be done quickly and efficiently. Mr. Shoiket and his team was able to accomplish all milestones on time and under budget while keeping me informed every step of the way. I will definitely be using him for future work.

Thank You Igor
I was introduced to Mr. Shoiket through the San Francisco State Bar Attorney Referral Program and was very pleased to have met Igor through them. I work everyday until 6 pm and Mr. Shoiket agreed to meet me after 6 pm in his office which was very convenient for me. He is a great listener and explains the entire process very thoroughly. I also appreciated the fact that he gave me a precise idea of how much my out of pocket costs will be for the project that I had in mind. He informed me every step of the way and I am very thankful for how he never kept me in the dark.
