Patterson Intellectual Property Law is a full-service intellectual property and technology law firm that provides results-focused IP solutions for businesses and entrepreneurs worldwide. We work directly with our clients to help them achieve their business goals through creative and effective use of intellectual property protection.
Serving Clients First
At Patterson, we believe that exceptional legal service requires more than understanding the technicalities of the law — it requires understanding clients’ industries and business goals.
We work with our clients of all sizes, from entrepreneurs to Fortune 500s, to provide creative, sustainable legal strategies for growth and development. Our professionals will help your business craft cost-effective legal solutions uniquely tailored to you and your needs, accounting for desired growth, industry realities, budget, and goals.
Targeted Practice, Broad Impact
As a boutique IP firm, Patterson focuses on intellectual property law matters such as patents, trademarks, copyrights, trade secrets, and innovative technologies. Our exclusive focus allows us to provide our clients with unparalleled service and depth of knowledge on IP matters, from securing, to licensing, to maintaining and enforcing our clients’ intellectual property interests.
Our practitioners draw from decades of technical experience while working on the front lines of intellectual property law, often setting case law and helping shape the direction of intellectual property protection, aligning it with our clients’ business strategies.
Original Thinking. Unique Protection.®
Boutique law firms often become so specialized in their practice that they lose the ability to see the big picture. Patterson is different. Because we employ a diverse range of professionals who have worked in and with multiple industries, we understand the broad impact of intellectual property on our clients beyond the scope of legal practice. Our unique mix of patent attorneys, technical experts, trial attorneys, and IP strategists allows us to provide unparalleled IP services for all business sectors, including R&D, marketing, logistics, communications, and more.
Additionally, we frequently partner with other general service law firms and in-house counsel to provide clients with exceptional, leading-edge IP services within a comprehensive, long-term business strategy.
Patterson Intellectual Property Law, P.C. was founded in 1992 in Nashville, Tennessee as the only law firm in the region dedicated to intellectual property and technology law. As part of Nashville’s rapid growth and development as an information technology hub, we realized that our clients needed cohesive strategies for managing their intellectual property and technology assets locally and internationally. Patterson quickly grew, expanding its scope, services, and client base to handle all forms of IP and technology matters, including prosecution, litigation, and business legal strategy.
Today, Patterson is a premier intellectual property boutique firm consistently ranked top tier in the region. With over a dozen attorneys and key support staff, Patterson is the largest intellectual property firm in Tennessee, serving clients locally and internationally on all matters of IP law.
