About Us

Who is Bold Patents?

It’s in our Name
The firm is named Bold, because that’s who we serve – the bold and brave. Our clients are inventors, entrepreneurs, and scientists that are pushing the limits, doing what hasn’t been done before, and taking big risks in the spirit of progress and positive change.

Expertise in Patent Law
Our main focus at Bold is to help inventors and business owners secure top-quality patents on their inventions. The process of getting a patent from the United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) is called ‘patent prosecution’, and that is our primary focus. We specialize in aerospace, healthcare, and software innovations – and stand ready to help in most any other area of patent law including utility, design, or plant patent applications. For many inventors and emerging businesses, protecting inventions (as well as other areas of intellectual property) is a big deal and often causes a lot of stress and anxiety. Our goal at Bold Patents is to take the stress and worry off your shoulders and put it squarely on ours.

Blazing our Own Trail
We serve our clients in a world-class, high-quality, high-efficiency manner. While the rest of the legal profession hangs on to what’s left of the traditional firm notion of layers of paralegals, staff, and ivory towers, we are proving again and again to our clients how much more agile, tech-savvy, and responsive Attorneys can and should be in today’s world.  When you work with Bold on your invention, you’ll work directly with a USPTO registered Patent Attorney – no associates, paralegals, or unanswered questions just direct access to your attorney to get resolution quickly.

Virtual Firm
No savvy client wants to spend their time driving an hour in traffic, finding/paying for parking, and then waiting in a stuffy lobby for 30 mins more. Instead, our Bold Attorneys will set up a video conference so that we can see prototypes, drawings, sketches of your invention as if we were standing right in your own shop, office, or place of business. We want to make the process as simple and easy for you as possible, and minimize the disruptions to your day so you can get back to creating the innovations of tomorrow.

Nationwide Presence
We have direct employee Patent Attorneys that have been hand-picked from different parts of this beautiful country. In addition, Bold has proactively sought out relationships with top-notch business law firms in key technology and innovation hubs around the United States. By having these relationships, we can assure you that we have a solid connection for you should you need help with basic business law needs such as entity formation, employment law issues, or more complex investment deals, licensing, or M&A.

Federal Practice
Bold Patents, as the name suggests, specializes in patent law. Patent law is largely governed by the federal statute, Section 35 of the United States Code.  Because the law is federal, and not state specific, we can serve clients and represent inventor clients nationwide. Our firm hires Patent Attorneys to represent inventors because they are highly qualified. Patent attorneys have earned a science or engineering degree, attended law school and earned a Juris Doctorate degree, passed at least one State Bar exam and then passed a separate Patent Bar examination. It is important to understand and consider how a patent may be litigated (argued in court) before or at least while the patent application is being drafted. Thus, having the credentials they do, and practicing law under only federal statutes, our Bold Patent Attorneys may serve you as long as you reside in the United States. Let us help you Go Bold!

How is Bold Patents different from Big Law?

Big LawBold Patents

We strive to enable our clients to grow and succeed with their patentable technology, not just end up with a ribbon copy paper.
