Patents, Trademarks, and other IP

Richards Patent Law is a Chicago-based intellectual property law firm that works with clients from around the world to protect their IP. Our broad experience helping clients bring new products to market has given us unique insight into how to best manage your IP strategy at each stage of your business.

From ideas on paper through product development to commercialization and beyond, we help clients make smarter decisions about their intellectual property. Not simply whether you can patent your invention, trademark your name, or copyright your software code, but whether you should.

What Makes Our Patent and Trademark Attorneys Different?

We enjoy working with our clients to find the best strategies for protecting their inventions, distinguishing their brands, and building their businesses. At heart, we are problem solvers and teachers. We take pride in patiently helping clients understand and evaluate their options before we move forward to take the appropriate legal action.

Our favorite clients are those whom we guide through the next stage of growth in their business, whether from idea to market or from national to international. It takes care and a trusting relationship to appropriately balance the need for valuable IP protection against the costs of legal services. This is what we do best.
