Outlier Patent Attorneys

We Write Strategic Patents

Historically, the best patent lawyers were found in elite BigLaw firms. But those lawyers have sky-high billing rates, and they rarely focus on strategy because they are more focused on churning out a large volume of patents to meet billables. (You can't bill a thousand hours a month doing strategy work!).

Our practitioners left elite BigLaw firms and in-house counsel roles because we saw a gap in the market for creating strategic patent portfolios for growing companies (without being incentivized to file a large volume of patents).

The Outlier team understands that it is not the volume of patents, but the value of patents that get filed. They would recommend when not to file patents, which is very different from my experiences with others.

Highly Specialized

Patents Only

We are singularly focused on patents. We don’t do trademark, copyright, contract, or litigation work. (But we can refer you to the right counsel!)

Lower Costs Through Efficiency

Singular practice focus reduces unnecessary costs and overhead.

Fully Aligned

If you need help outside of patents, we are not incentivized to refer you to other attorneys within our firm (who may be a poor fit).

Clear Communication

Signal ≠ Noise

We consolidate our communication with you so you’re not overwhelmed with updates. We also make sure to clearly tell you when  your action is needed or if it’s simply for your records.

Jargon Free

We take pride in communicating with our clients without using buzzwords, jargon, and legalese. You have our permission and encouragement to ask for clarification.


We help you understand the legal side and how it impacts your business. We’ll make recommendations so that you are able to make timely, well-informed decisions.
