Excellent IP attorney
Dee Malhotra is a top notch patent attorney. Everything he does is well researched and aimed at providing results. He is particularly knowledgeable on USPTO practice and trends. I have repeatedly called upon his excellent services to secure US patent protection for my own Canadian clients. As a client, I was always kept well informed. The work was completed on time, on budget. I recommend Dee for any IP related work whether trademarks, copyright, patents or trade secrets. His advice is clear and his thinking is strategic.

Dee Malhotra is an outstanding patent attorney
Deepak Malhotra is an outstanding patent attorney. Being a good patent attorney fundamentally requires that the attorney has a sound technical background in combination with exceptional legal skills - Deepak Malhotra possesses both of these skills which he has demonstrated on numerous occassions when he, as outside counsel, represented my previous employers. Demonstrating technical and legal savviness can make an attorney a good patent attorney, but to be an exceptional patent attorney, a good patent attorney must demonstrate that he can be relied upon by the client and provide sound advise in critical situations. Deepak is an exceptional attorney and a good human being. He is knowledgeable and trustworthy. My feedback is based on over 15 years of experience in working with Deepak.
