Most IP-related marketing content is ineffective.

It generally fails in one of five ways:

  • It’s written in legalese.
  • It shows a lack of understanding of IP issues.
  • It insults readers by stating the obvious.
  • It’s useless.
  • It’s dull as dirt.

These failures happen because most of the people who write the content are:

  • IP lawyers who want to impress other IP lawyers,
  • non-lawyers who don’t know squat about IP, or
  • just plain bad writers.

The Challenge

Marketing in the IP space is challenging. You need to explain complex, technical issues in a way that’s both clear and compelling – maybe even entertaining.

You audience may be:

  • Non-technical businesspeople with only a vague idea what IP even is
  • IP lawyers who know more about IP than you do
  • Sophisticated non-lawyer business managers and investors
  • Inventors
  • All of the above

Whatever your audience, we can help you reach them and engage them.

Why We Can Handle It

We’re quite a team:

  • A Harvard Law School graduate and a member of the California bar with more than 25 years of experience doing IP work for clients like HP and Intuit – who’s also an award-winning writer
  • A PhD in business with more than 25 years of experience, including as a VP of marketing, working for high-tech companies – who’s also a patent-holder

We’re fluent in IP, marketing, and business, and we don’t think any other marketing firm can match our skillset.
