How We Work

Paratus is one of the leading boutique intellectual property law firms in the U.S. There’s no blueprint for our success; we adapt our methods to the needs of each client. Most importantly, we work as a team to understand and achieve our clients’ business goals. Technology in the law is our main area of expertise, with emphasis on the consumer electronics, communications, semiconductor, mechanical, automotive, chemical, biotechnology, and pharmaceutical sectors.

Our Practice Areas


Innovation thrives with us.

We look forward to meeting you and learning your business goals for your next big idea. Our highly experienced attorneys will counsel you on how to get the best patent coverage, and, if needed, we will gladly write your patent application from scratch. Emerging businesses, mid-tier companies, multi-national corporations, and universities worldwide work with us to secure, leverage, and enforce their U.S. patents.  


Let's secure your reputation.

Whether your business is growing or established, proper brand management, registration, and protection are critical. Our team provides all of the appropriate counseling, opinions, prosecution, and enforcement services related to U.S. trademark issues. We can also conduct U.S. trademark availability searches as needed.


Protect your content with confidence.

We have the experience to give businesses, investors, and individuals legal guidance regarding copyright enforcement and protection from copyright infringement claims. Let us ensure you can protect your copyrightable content, including both published and unpublished intellectual works.


Share technology the smart way.

Our team produces thoughtful, effective agreements for technology licensing and transactions. All drafts are tailored to your specific business objectives, and you can count on our highly skilled attorneys for expert counseling and negotiation.

Client Training

We appreciate the opportunity to teach our clients more about U.S. patent procedures as well as typical U.S. business practices. Conveniently, the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) is just a quick metro ride away from our comfortable yet elegant office in Tysons Corner, Virginia, just outside of downtown Washington, D.C.  It’s our pleasure to make arrangements for international clients, attorneys and intellectual property professionals to visit and learn with us. Senior members of our team also travel abroad to provide complimentary seminars on U.S. patent and trademark practice.

We're interested in getting to know you.
