Firm Overview

Startup IP Law, LLC ("SIPL") provides smaller clients with personalized intellectual-property (IP) strategies to meet the client's needs, balanced with the client's budget. SIPL believes in empowering its Clients with the information needed such that Clients can make informed decisions now and in the future as budget constraints lesson. Conversely, many other law firms unilaterally withhold information on various options available to a client based on the law firm's perception of the client's sophistication and economic standing, which can be a formula for lost opportunities later on. SIPL will take the time to present various IP-protection options to its Clients, whether be the best ways to preserve potential foreign IP interests (e.g., foreign patent rights, as opposed to only U.S. patent rights), ways to speed-up the patent-prosecution process, etc.

In addition to patent prosecution, SIPL provides a wide variety of intellectual-property and business law services to small businesses, with an eye toward enhancing a business' valuation by way of effectively enhancing its IP portfolio.

In many cases, affordable fixed-fee rates are offered to Clients to give them certainty on their projected costs, and SIPL's hourly rates for other cases are significantly lower than most IP law firms. In addition, the Firm offers FREE 45-minute initial consultations. SIPL accepts VISA, Master Card, and American Express.

Intellectual Property
An intellectual-property law firm that specializes in the preparation and prosecution of applications for patents, trademarks, and copyrights.
The Firm works with individual inventors and small entrepreneurial businesses in developing and implementing affordable strategies to maximize an effective intellectual-property (IP) portfolio to enhance the valuation of and grow the business. The Firm's primary attorney, Terrence M. Wyles, prepares and prosecutes utility patent applications in the areas of electrical arts, mechanical arts, software, and business methods. In addition, other intellectual-property and business services are offered as well, including services in the areas of design patents, trademarks, copyrights, trade secrets, licensing agreements, confidentiality and non-disclosure agreements, joint-operating agreements, formations, and other business contracts.

The Firm is also quite knowledgeable and experienced in various strategies to preserve foreign intellectual-property rights, as well as in various strategies to trim significant time off of the otherwise extremely lengthy US utility patent-prosecution process, which in turn can lead, in some cases, an actual issued US utility patent relatively quickly.

The Firm's patent-prosecution experience has included subject matter that has included, but is not limited to, switching power supplies, energy-storage device (capacitor, batteries, fuel cells, etc.) technologies, nanotechnologies involving the use of graphene tubes and ribbons in electronics, computer I/O device technologies, medical sterilization technologies, medical-diagnosis technologies, web-processing (coating) technologies, water-purification devices, software, cell-phone technologies, various business methods, and various simple-to-complex mechanical inventions from individual inventors.

The Firm offers reasonable flat fees for most services, and also offers reasonable hourly rates for those who prefer hourly-fee arrangements. If you want an IP attorney who will diligently keep you informed of your various options and work closely with you to maximize your IP interests, while keeping your costs within reason, then you should contact the Firm for a FREE initial consultation.

Mr. Wyles has been prosecuting patents for approximately six years, and in addition to patent prosecution, he also specializes in trademarks, copyrights, and related business matters such as licensing and IP litigation support. Like many patent practitioners, Mr. Wyles had a substantial technology-based career before entering the legal profession. In his case, Mr. Wyles gained extensive education and experience as an engineer in the nuclear-power, IT, and telecom industries, which in turn allows him to aid Inventors across multiple technology disciplines.

Prior to launching Startup IP Law, LLC, Mr. Wyles spent most of his legal career as an Associate Patent Attorney with two small boutique patent law firms, working primarily with individual inventors and small businesses. Mr. Wyles' patent-prosecution experience has primarily targeted software (and other computer-related inventions), the electrical arts, the mechanical arts, business methods, and some medical devices. In addition, Mr. Wyles is quite knowledgeable and experienced in various strategies to preserve foreign IP interests, as well as in various programs and strategies to "fast-track" patent prosecution, which is very important to emerging companies trying to attract venture capital.

Mr. Wyles' patent-prosecution experience has included subject matter that has included, but is not limited to, switching power supplies, energy-storage device (capacitor, batteries, fuel cells, etc.) technologies, nanotechnologies involving the use of graphene tubes and ribbons in electronics, computer I/O device technologies, medical sterilization technologies, medical-diagnosis technologies, web-processing (coating) technologies, water-purification devices, software, cell-phone technologies, various business methods, and various simple-to-complex mechanical inventions from individual inventors.

Mr. Wyles earned a Juris Doctorate from the University of Denver Sturm College of Law. Additionally, he has a Bachelor of Science in Computer Science from Metropolitan State University of Denver, and is a graduate of the United States Naval Nuclear-Power Program, having spent many years working in and supervising the operations of submarine nuclear-propulsion plants, and later consulting with various nuclear utility companies and U.S. Dept. of Energy facilities around the U.S.
