"I worked with Alex to apply for the first patent application of our start-up. Since we would be attending a large industry conference, it was critical that we file a patent application prior to the show. Alex was able to draft and submit the application in less than a week! Alex was very quick to dive deep into the core of our product and diligently worked with us to tune our approach to the patent applications. I found Alex to be both a top-notch professional and knowledgeable and I intent to work with him on our next patents. I am confident Alex would be very helpful for any company that cares about their intellectual property."
