A good IP strategy requires good IP. I reduce an inventor’s concepts to its first principles under the laws of physics by asking “why?” I then reason up to a description of what can become patentable subject matter by asking “how?” The reward comes in seeing clients benefit from their efforts by securing patents that they can employ in growing their businesses.
