Why Hyperion?

There are several unique values which drive Hyperion's interactions with clients:

  • an intrinsic belief that a company must start with a business strategy before it can know how to create its most valuable IP assets;
  • a commitment to engage with your technology and business teams throughout the IP process in order to be a thought partner and IP guardian for you from conception to filing and beyond; and
  • a commitment to provide guidance not just on process and execution, but also in prioritizing monetary and time resources against the needs of the business to get the essential IP portfolio established.

The key outcomes I aspire to create over the long term with each of my clients are:

  • An understanding of what to patent - and what not to patent
  • Prioritization among your many options and areas to cover to achieve a list of those most vital
  • An IP protection roadmap that can serve as a guide to business decision-making
  • Structured communication of our jointly-evolved IP strategy to outside stakeholders such as investors,
    potential acquirers and partners
  • Acquainting you and your employees with the IP process so that your engineering and business teams together become part of the stewardship of the company’s vital IP assets
  • An outstanding patent portfolio: (a) breadth that covers your current and future technology and business offerings/innovations and (b) each patent written in highly defensible language where claims and specifications stake your company’s claim not just in the areas you presently consider vital, but future and potentially unanticipated needs as well
  • Through my participation in your business prioritization process, I strive to ensure that our protection
    strategy evolves with your changing thinking as you encounter new challenges and opportunities in your business

Three things in the first four weeks that will surprise you:

  • I will sit down with you and your team to help you understand right away what you need to do to be effective stewards of your company’s IP assets; I am committed to the demystification of patent law
  • Beginning with our initial consultation, we will work together as thought partners and I will identify how your current business plans will affect your current and future IP rights. In working together, I will not just identify subject matter to patent, but an explanation of how your business may be impacted by present and future IP decisions
  • I live and breathe technology; I’m passionate about every kind of technology and will be just as
    enthusiastic as you are about your technology ventures
