Why Martensen IP Law?
Technology is changing at an unprecedented pace, making intellectual property law inseparable from business and scientific decisions for more and more business executives and entrepreneurs. And in instances where the government acts as a customer, the complexity and density of issues that must be navigated can seem overwhelming. For legal guidance regarding the increasingly complicated intersections of business with IP law, government contracts, and engineering, an increasing number of entrepreneurs, business executives and investors alike are turning to Martensen IP.
In addition to his law license, attorney Michael Martensen also earned an MBA and multiple degrees in engineering. He also has decades of hands-on experience interacting with the government. Every member of Martensen IP echoes this unique skill set. Many of our attorneys practiced for more than 10 years within large national law and intellectual property specialty firm environments in Silicon Valley, San Francisco, and Colorado. Martensen IP’s clients now benefit from the lessons learned in those large firms without paying large law firm fees and overhead.
Martensen IP is uniquely positioned not just as a provider of technical legal information, but as an integral member of a business’ advisory team. This lean firm structure allows Martensen IP to provide superior legal guidance while still observing a business’ need for results-centered and cost-effective services. As a result, Martensen IP provides legal advice relevant to capturing and maintaining clients’ competitive advantage in their fast-moving competitive landscapes.
Clients benefit from the collective background of our intellectual property attorneys, which includes scientific and engineering expertise, large law firm experience and prior contracting experience with the U.S. Department of Defense. These skill sets make it possible for Martensen IP to understand the technical features and operations of a client’s project while at the same time identifying, protecting and enhancing clients’ core value. Because the attorneys at Martensen IP understand how clients’ projects work, they know what IP elements of the projects need legal protection and how to protect them. The Martensen IP knowledge set thereby minimizes the time and expense of having to retain outside experts and ensures that nothing is lost in the translation from the expert to the attorney.
