* About Clocktower Law

Lawyers For Human Beings (TM)

Clocktower Law is a small Boston-area patent/trademark law firm founded by Erik Heels in 2001.

Clocktower Law helps companies protect their ideas (with patents and trade secrets) and brands (with trademarks, domain names, and usernames) from the competition.

Clocktower Law’s patent and trademark lawyers have worked as non-lawyers for software and Internet startups, so we understand how intellectual property (IP) works in the real world.

As such, Clocktower Law has helped many entrepreneurs have successful exits (getting acquired, going public).

We do not, however, represent patent trolls, trademark bullies, or cybersquatters.

So we’re not the right firm for everyone.

But we’re a good choice for many.

“Clocktower Law gets it. They get how patents and trademarks work in the real world. And they really get the Internet. I’ve used them for patents, copyrights, and domain name purchase negotiations. I highly recommend their services and will use them again.”
– Paul English, CTO/Cofounder, Kayak.com
