Our sister firm, Patent GC (www.patentgc.com) is a great fit for many of our clients. Like Outside GC, Patent GC is a partner-only firm, and is comprised exclusively of former senior in-house IP counsel. Patent GC handles patent and trademark prosecution work, but also performs portfolio management services on a fixed-fee basis, and can even serve as a company’ s part-time in-house IP counsel.
