Small, Medium, Enterprise
We are a boutique intellectual property law firm. Our practice is focused entirely on intellectual property. Every one of our attorneys is a registered patent attorney. While other law firms may have IP attorneys as part of their practice, intellectual property is our exclusive focus. We are able to dedicate all of our resources to protecting, enforcing, and defending your intellectual property beginning at conception.
Additon, Pendleton & Witherspoon, Patent Attorneys, are experts in intellectual property law. We rely upon decades of experience as practitioners and counselors to guide our clients in leveraging and achieving their intellectual property rights. Our firm provides a full range of intellectual property services with a focus on patent and trademark prosecution, copyrights, trade secrets, intellectual property litigation, licensing and counseling. We understand the importance of global intellectual property rights as demonstrated by our representation of clients from all over the world.
Additon, Pendleton & Witherspoon, P.A. offers all the intellectual property expertise of a larger firm, yet maintains a manageable size that encourages client engagement. This, and our position as a leading group of IP professionals in the fast-growing, business-friendly southeastern U.S., enables us to offer greater flexibility and responsiveness as compared with larger law firms.
