* Winning Clients

Angel/VC Funding, Investments, Acquisitions, Exits, and Other Deals

Some of the most successful companies choose Clocktower Law for IP services.

Clocktower Law clients spend less on IP - and hence more on product. It's easy to overspend on IP, and it's easy to get into IP trouble (such as litigation). That's why we focus on only the IP that matters - and on keeping our clients out of trouble:

  • What's an issued patent worth?
  • What's a registered trademark worth?
  • What's not getting sued for IP infringement worth?

Clocktower Law clients have raised billions of dollars, have been acquired by privately held companies, have been acquired by publicly traded companies, and have IPO'ed (gone public). As a result of these deals, we believe that Clocktower Law's deals/lawyer/year ratio (including 19 exits in 15+ years) is the best of any IP law firm in the country.

Clocktower Law did not do these deals (we're not M&A lawyers). We did not even do 100% of the IP work for all of these clients. But we did a good chunk of it. And, as part of the IP due diligence, we saw the value that IP added to each company's bottom line.

In short, we're glad to have helped our cool clients achieve their business goals.
