Technology is changing the trademark sector. From docketing to watching and searching, it’s now possible to provide attorneys with high quality services at a reasonable price.
But until now, the market has relied on a few suppliers, who charge extremely high fees. Smaller firms cannot afford these prices, and larger firms are forced to hand on the cost to their client.
In 2007 we started exploring ways to bring together searching, watching, and automated docketing into one tool. Our software has won awards and helped attorneys serve thousands of clients.
The LawPanel platform takes these tools and makes them available to attorneys and IP owners everywhere.
Whether you’re an international firm, a solo practitioner, or an IP owner, LawPanel is here to help transform your trademark practice.
