A personal note from Peter

As a small firm, I offer personal attention that most larger firms cannot extend to every client. Having also invented, developed, and marketed my own patented invention, I understand the entire concept-to-development-to-marketing thought process required for a successful business venture. Whatever your needs from patents to patentable inventions, trademarks, copyrights, trade secrets and more—I can help you protect your competitive advantage through protection of your innovations.

From my office in Williamsburg, VA, I help clients both large and small from across the globe with their intellectual property issues.


"Working with Peter has always been a real pleasure. With over a dozen letters of patent completed, his communication and apprehension skills are extraordinary.


Peter’s office is located above the Craft House in historic Merchant’s Square, Williamsburg, VA.
