Bold Patents is a proud donor and board member in support of Bold Innovations, which is a non-profit adolescent after-school program that focuses on project-based learning and creativity. Providing the framework, Bold Innovations strives to help inspire young minds into solving real-world problems by fostering a safe, fun and inquisitive environment. Bold Innovations has created a community for learning based out of the University of Tacoma campus. Plans to expand to the North end are underway.

Bold Patents strives to educate and inform the public about IP Law and Business Law. Our firm wants clients and non-clients alike to familiarize themselves with IP and Business Law. In order to accomplish this, Bold Patents is teaming up with The Inventor’s Launchpad in 2018 to start a podcast on the 4 pillars of IP Law: Patents, Trademarks, Copyrights, and Trade Secrets, and how businesses should be identifying, protecting, enforcing and monetizing those IP assets.


Bold has partnered with SURF in an educational alliance to help startups and emerging businesses in the Greater Seattle area. SURF Incubator provides open community work environments and professional resources so that businesses may receive the mentorship, facilities, and educational events to support efficient and effective growth. Bold Patents will be providing 3 courses so that businesses may Learn, Plan, and Implement patent, trademark, copyright, and trade secret law to grow their businesses.

Bold Patents loves to give back to the community through pro-bono legal services for low-income and modest-means artists, inventors, and those starting businesses. Bold Patents offers these intellectual property legal consulting services for those who register through and qualify for legal assistance through Wayfind. Wayfind provides business transactional pro bono opportunities to Washington attorneys, so they can efficiently and meaningfully share their expertise with nonprofits, enabling the nonprofits to focus on their missions. Wayfind finds nonprofits in need and screens them to ensure they are viable and have a ripe business transactional legal need for our volunteers.


Bold Patents is a proud sponsor of Team Child and especially the Team Child Hackathan which was a focused effort to use advances in technology to think of new ways to help serve the underprivileged youth of today with a focus on legal challenges/access to justice. From the website: “TeamChild works with youth, generally between the ages of 12-18, who come from low-income families and are involved, or at risk of involvement, in the juvenile justice system. Some of the youth we serve are facing criminal charges. Some have already been convicted and are on diversion, probation, or parole. Other youth might have contact with juvenile court because of dependency matters (foster care), or because of a Child In Need of Services (CHINS), At Risk Youth (ARY), or truancy petition.”

Bold Patents is a proud sponsor of Economic Alliance Snohomish County, which is an organization promoting stronger economic communities, increased job creation, expanded educational opportunity, and improved infrastructure. EASC accomplishes these goals by expanding partnerships, developing key resources, and building infrastructure systems to create local and regional employment centers.
