At the Law Offices of H.W. Pfabé, we focus on Intellectual Property.
This means Patents, Trademarks, Copyright, Trade Dress, Trade Secrets, Unfair Business Practices, Non-Disclosure Agreements, and all of the many ways of protecting your business, name, and ideas, as well as helping your business grow.
So what makes us different?
Unlike some law firms, our work is not just focused on a single task. We help you figure out your long term business and intellectual property needs, and then help you achieve your goals in both the short term and the long.
We strive to always keep in mind what is in your best interest, and go the extra mile to deliver, now and for the future.
Additionally, unlike with some other firms, you're not just getting some lawyers who tell you how to run your business, in theory, never knowing what it's really like.
Here, you get an attorney who has developed products, and who has actually built businesses. He knows what your needs are, because he's been where you are.
At the Law Offices of H.W. Pfabé, you don't just get a Patent Attorney & Intellectual Property Counsel. You also get a highly experienced former Engineer, Manager, and Executive who has launched dozens of products and knows what it's like to be in both a start-up environment as well as an established corporation.
He knows what it's like to take an idea, and make it profitable. He also knows what it's like to protect your ideas from being stolen, and ensure the growth of your business.
