With Nick, patents aren’t just about legal protections. The IP process is about making sure your product is understood, appreciated, and positioned for success.

If you want to work with an attorney who probes for all the details of your creation because he is awed and curious, not just because he needs to file your patent, Nick is your man. Nick is one of those rare people who seems most comfortable in the unfamiliar and thrives in constant change. After all, the need for more challenges is what pushed him to move out of academia and work directly with inventors. His approach to IP is similar to the way he approaches his hobby of building and programming computers: The foundational principles remain the same, but each project requires customized strategy to reach its full potential.
