Our IP services span a wide range, but from start to finish, we perform them with a singular vision: helping our clients achieve their business goals. That rigorous focus has helped us grow into a national practice of more than 150 intellectual property professionals, advising brands like Molson Coors and world-renowned research institutions like Mass General Brigham. We work with clients to determine the best strategy to capitalize on all of their IP. From agriculture to genetics, software development to consumer goods, our advice to you will always be informed by deep technical knowledge and industry experience. We understand the marketplace you operate in and tailor our legal support to each client, based on your competitive context and business strategy. At Quarles, we also are value-conscious, a national leader in the use of alternative fee arrangements — and will always keep your bottom line in mind.

Experience across industries, and across intellectual property and patent law

Many of our attorneys hold degrees outside their legal training, previously serving as engineers, biochemists, pharmacists or other roles demanding deep industry knowledge. Our team also includes former patent and trademark examiners for the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO). We have technical experience in areas including:

  • Optical sciences and technologies
  • Electrical, computer and software products
  • Manufacturing technology
  • Medical technology and pharmaceuticals
  • Biotechnology and chemistry

From patent to trademark portfolio management and strategy, we combine a level of experience, knowledge and judgment that sets us apart from other firms — a team that helps businesses and individuals prosper through the protection of their IP.
