About
During my seven years as a practicing patent attorney and ten years as a registered Patent Agent (USPTO Registration Number 68,638), I have participated in several high-stakes patent trials, prepared and prosecuted dozens of patent applications to allowance, and advised numerous clients on general IP strategy including assessing IP licensing agreements. I have helped large international corporations execute their IP strategy as well as small to mid sized businesses seeking to leverage their IP into further growth. I can help you develop the optimum IP strategy for your business goals.

"Attorney Alton Hare has great experience in IP matters. I spoke to about 7 attorneys prior to speaking to him, these other attorneys did not meet my expectations. Attorney Hare was able to communicate quickly what he could deliver and the way it would be done. I am very pleased with his impeccable work and I will certainly work with him again."
