Contact by e-mail
If you would like to email us a question related to our services, we are eager to hear from you! Please be as clear, concise, and specific as possible with your question in order to solicit the most valuable response.
If you know who you'd like to contact at our firm, you can find all of the personal direct e-mail addresses on our staff directory.
- If you have a question about marketing your invention, please look at this page before contacting us.
- If you wonder whether we have heard of a specific Invention Marketing Company, read this list before contacting us. If the company is not listed, we cannot say anything about it.
- If you wonder whether we know of any Invention Marketing Companies which are honest and will find you a licensee without expecting any up-front payment, please know that we do not know of any. (Please read this page).
- If you intend to tell us you have paid an Invention Marketing Company thousands of dollars, and want to know if you can get your money back, then generally we cannot assist you. Your remedies would be governed by the contract you signed, and the laws of the state in which you live, or where the marketing company is located. Your best bet is to (a) first ask for your money back - you never know; then, if that doesn't work, (b) contact an attorney in your area, have him or her review the contract, and ask what rights you might have under your state's laws and the American Inventor Protection Act of 1999. If you feel you have been mistreated by the IMC, consider contacting the Federal Trade Commission and filing a complaint with the US Patent and Trademark Office.
Confidentiality of Information Provided
We want to hear from you, but please understand that no attorney-client relationship is established by contacting us or submitting information via this website. If you ask us to represent you and we agree to the representation, the attorney-client relationship will be established at that time. In the meantime, we intend to maintain the confidentiality of any information you provide.
It is possible that we already represent another client whose interests might conflict with yours now or in the foreseeable future. We cannot be forced to withdraw from representation of an existing client, or be precluded from accepting a new client, because we received an unsolicited question or information.
By contacting us, you agree that, until you retain us to represent you and we accept that representation, no attorney-client relationship will exist between you and our firm. We may review any information you provide to us, and you agree that our review of the information contained in e-mail and any attachments will not preclude our firm (or any attorney or agent in the firm) from representing a party in any matter where that information is relevant.
If it appears we would be prevented from representing you because we previously represented another client whose interests might conflict, we will inform you of that potential conflict. If at that time you still want us to represent you, we would be required to obtain your consent and the consent of the other client before we could accept such representation, which would require revealing at least some of your information to the other client and vice-versa. In this situation, unless both parties agree to waive the potential conflict, we would not be able to accept you as a client.
