We are Wood IP!

We’re passionate about IP generally, patents in particular, and we love what we do.  Our attorneys, patent agents, and technical specialists have deep expertise in a wide range of fields. We provide strategic counsel from idea conception, to product, to launch and beyond. Our experience with patents does not end with patent preparation and prosecution. We apply our knowledge of the laws and workings of the Patent Office to advise on PTO proceedings and claim interpretation for infringement and validity opinions.

All of our attorneys, patent agents, and technical specialists have an advanced degree or significant industry experience. We have been research fellows and scientists, lead design engineers, computer programmers, and more. We recruit attorneys, agents, and technical specialists specifically for their technical expertise and industry experience.

Our backgrounds range from District attorney, CDC & FDA scientists, and PTO Law Experts, to U.S. Air Force officers,  Northrop Grumman engineer, and postdoctoral fellows.  The diverse teams at Wood IP blend the accomplished abilities of IP professionals who have earned decades of IP law experience with the fresh perspectives of seasoned patent agents, knowledgeable technical specialists, and experienced patent attorneys.
