Venture Capital Backed Start-Up & IP Counseling


Within the Venture Capital community, KPPB is recognized as the go-to firm for companies commercializing complex technologies.  Much of KPPB's impressive growth over the last decade has been driven by word-of-mouth referrals from VCs looking to maximize value from portfolio companies seeking to commercialize groundbreaking technologies.

For an early-stage technology company intellectual property protection is vital. Patent filings alone, however, cannot make a technology company succeed. The venture capitalists with whom we work know that we can rapidly and efficiently identify an intellectual property strategy that parallels our client’s road map and accommodates change. That is why, when they invest, they call KPPB to protect their investment.

Due to KPPB’s focus on working with venture backed startup companies, we have extensive experience in the intellectual property aspects of investment due diligences and M&A transactions. Our professionals are familiar with the intricacies of establishing patent valuation, open source software policy compliance, and issues surrounding AI training data terms of use.  Co-founding partner, David Bailey also advised both DivX, Inc. and Volcom, Inc. during their successful IPOs.
