Meets Deadlines

"Ashkon helped me complete a difficult job within a tight deadline. Though I'm not qualified to comment intelligently on the quality of the patent that Ashkon produced, to my untrained eye it appears to be very thorough and well written. Ashkon and I spoke several times on the phone and once one face to face. Ashkon has an unassuming and likeable disposition. He actively sought my input where appropriate, and responded well to feedback. I sensed that Ashkon was genuinely interested in creating real value for my company, and in writing a patent application that had the best possible chance of success."

"As a startup company on a focused budget, we turned to Ashkon to help us understand and pursue a complex intellectual property portfolio consisting of multiple patent applications that we intended to license to another entity. Ashkon helped clarify the purpose of each application advised us on the applicability of several competing pieces of intellectual property. We were thrilled when one of the most valuable applications was recently granted."
