We build high quality, high value patent portfolios aligned with your business strategy.

Our non-traditional approach enables us to use our decades of patent and biotech experience to get closer to your team and your technologies.

Use IP to maximize the value of your company.

We help life sciences companies build valuable patent portfolios and stay clear of their competitors’ IP.

We bring the lessons learned by our founder, Manny Vacchiano, JD, PhD, in his decades of innovative IP strategy and processes working in house at leading life sciences companies, to provide an innovative, pseudo in-house service level to our clients. Your patents and trade secrets are business assets that we help you maximize within your overall business strategy.
