PATENT AND TRADEMARK APPLICATIONS FILED ANNUALLY

  • Amadeus is a global company with inventors in dozens of sites world-wide working together on complex software-focussed products. PCK is quick to understand the technology and our strategic needs and is thus a “go-to” firm for originating patent drafting. PCK handles Amadeus invention disclosures, patent and design drafting, filing and prosecution as well as on-site invention harvesting. Their direct work before the USPTO and CIPO is extremely convenient for our North American needs, and they work seamlessly with our network of foreign counsel.  They also provide sound advice on our internal records management for our IP unit. We admire their creativity and excellence and how they bring value to the protection of Amadeus intellectual property.

    Bob, Ryan and the PCK team are the best around - always available, always on point, and always valuable - I would recommend them without a moment's hesitation.

    As we transition to a global entity with one brand, one voice, PCK will continue providing us with top notch IP protection. Stephen and the Perry + Currier team are second to none.

    We were looking for a strong Corporate Counsel and Intellectual Property partner who could understand our business and support our expansion in the US and Europe when I came across Peter Bormann and David Johnson from PCKIP. We consistently get world class engagement from both and see them as an integral part of our growing business.

  • Eigen_logo_white

    The Industrial Internet of Things has the potential to add $3 trillion of value to the global economy. As a leading innovator in IIoT and industrial vision systems, Eigen Innovations requires an IP firm which provides timely and practical advice that is also strategic in helping us refine the direction of our technology. We have found PCK great to work with as a start-up in an industry segment that is complex and growing rapidly.

    CEO
  • As a startup, we hope to improve people's lives. As a patent agency and law firm, PCK has succeeded in improving our lives as IP creators. They have gone above and beyond in assisting with our business and intellectual property strategy. They are approachable, knowledgeable, helpful, fun, and they truly show they care. They are amazing to work with and we look forward to continue our relationship.
    Andrew Martinko
    Founder
  • We’re working on the cutting edge of virtual reality and we need to collaborate with other innovators. David Johnson at PCK ensures our IP needs are met quickly; he takes the time to understand our technology so that we can develop our patent strategy in alignment with our business goals. Such strategic advice is unfortunately rare and goes well beyond high-quality patent drafting.

    CEO
  • Ryan Smith and PCKIP successfully helped TouchBistro navigate the US patent process and obtain a commercially valuable US Patent. They did a great job understanding our sophisticated mobile/cloud technology. Their skill, persistence, and advocacy both in drafting, written submissions, and in person before the USPTO were fundamental to TouchBistro's US patent being granted.
