In the fast-paced, jam-packed, stressed-out world of in-house counsel, you need trustworthy outside counsel willing to put quality first and meet deadlines. Gilliam IP is a firm committed to serving our clients with a team of eclectic practitioners well-versed in creating a quality work product based on the seemingly continuously changing case law and USPTO programs and announcements. We prepare applications that inventors can actually read, allowing the inventors to provide productive feedback. You won’t find self-serving strategies here (e.g. continuation mills, repeat RCEs, etc.) since we prefer to make recommendations that are effective in both outcome and cost, and that align with client goals.
Our team possesses diverse technology experience from both industry and patent law practice. We conduct internal peer reviews and sound out arguments with each other to further improve our work product instead of churning out billable hours regardless of result. New practitioners are held to our exacting standards from day one, and are carefully trained for 2-3 years.
Although Gilliam IP is a fairly new firm, many of us have been working together for several years. We have taken over entire client dockets from law firms that are nationally ranked in IP, named "Best Law Firm" in patent law for multiple years, and rated "#1 in Patent Quality." Our firm has developed patent portfolios in technologies including processor architecture, telecommunications, enterprise storage, a variety of software technologies, and energy related technology.
Gilliam IP is on a mission to serve our clients by doing the work properly.
