“My company is a small, software manufacturer that faced industry-wide infringement from much larger competitors.  Richard worked hard to develop effective legal strategies for us. He was instrumental in helping our company win three IPR’s directed to complex, motion control software technology.  In addition, he helped guide us through a long and difficult litigation. His advice was always well grounded and well thought out – definitely someone you want on your team. ” Dave Brown, Co-Founder and Chief Technical Officer, ROY-G-Biv Corp.

“Rich is a fantastic attorney who can lead a team to excellent results. He is a top notch mentor and provided invaluable guidance to me as I worked on IP matters with him …”  Victor Miller, V.P. and G.C. Defense and Space and Mergers, Acquisitions and Joint Ventures at Honeywell Aerospace

“As a new entrepreneur, I had managed to get one biotech patent from my research at the University of Wisconsin. I showed this patent to Richard, who advised to file a reissue application, which resulted in a whole series of new patents that actually covered my technology.  When I was negotiating a joint venture, another company independently evaluated and rated these patents and other patents he filed as providing ‘strong patent protection.’ Richard’s assistance with joint venture agreements was invaluable.  He immediately identified holes in the agreement drafted by a corporate attorney that could have led to loss of my intellectual property.  Richard wrote clawback provisions in case of breach of contract and bankruptcy, which stood up and resulted in having my IP returned.  In another joint venture, Richard’s careful reading of the contracts and insightful legal opinions again resulted in complete return of my IP when the collaborator with whom I had contracted did not live up to his promises. I have been so impressed by Richard’s breadth of knowledge and good humor.  I strongly recommend his services to anyone looking for legal representation.” Richard L. Atkinson, M.D., President, Obetech LLC
