Our Vision, Our Mission, Our Culture, and Our Values
Our Law Firm is built upon the bedrock principle of the Clients' best interests, not perceived best interests, but their actual best interests. At VRP Law Group, we want each member of our Legal Team (Vihar, Denny, David, Janelle, Susan, Vanessa, Nirmal and Pranesh) to exercise their own professional legal judgment. We encourage each member of our legal team to share their comments and thoughts, whether or not they contradict the opinion of another team member on a similar issue. We will make sure we fully understand the issues before making a recommendation to you.
While you may not always agree with us, we always provide our rationale for our recommendations and respect the concerns raised by our Clients. However, we promise never to say to our Clients--do it our way, based on any of the following: a) the legal advice from the prior attorney you had; b) what a client wants to hear; c) the same advice as the attorney that referred you to us; or d) the same as our prior advice, even though, circumstances may have changed. Frankly, none of these rationales serve the Clients' interests, so, they are not an adequate basis for making any given recommendation to a Client.
Our Clients appreciate the fact that we exercise our own professional legal judgment and tell it to them straight. We are very much process and efficiency focused, because that is what our business and corporate clients want, deserve and have come to expect from VRP Law P.C. and VRP Law Group. We make sure that the legal services we provide are necessary to achieve each client's individual, business, corporate, professional and personal goals. We are passionate about being a business partner for our Clients, whom we consider to be a valued member of our professional legal services team!
Our boutique law firm is based in Chicago and located in the loop close to the Federal and State Courthouses. Our law firm's mission is to be the first point of contact in advance of a problem arising. However, this requires a relationship of trust and confidence in your lawyer. It is our attorneys' job to create a legal experience that fosters this confidence and trust. We want to work with you to stay apprised of any decision that carries some form of business, compliance, corporate, litigation or legal risk. As your lawyers, it is our job to anticipate your needs and present you with creative legal and business solutions.
We believe intellectual property law, copyright, patents, trademarks and trade secrets are going to be a growing and important area of law today, tomorrow and in the next fifty (50) years. More and more our economy seems to be driven by new products, new inventions, start ups or entrepreneurs and research and development. All of these segments of the U.S. Economy can benefit largely from having a good intellectual property acquisition, enforcement, monetization and protection strategies. Our technical background and our ability to develop creative solutions and understand the abstract and novel concepts involved in pursuing patents, copyrights, trademarks and trade secrets make us a good fit for practicing intellectual property law.
Our lawyers are biologist, engineers, software developers, database designers, website and SEO experts, as well as, experts in intellectual property law. Our technical background allows us to handle a variety of patent, copyright, trademark and trade secrets. More importantly, our lawyers are practical business professionals and understand that having intellectual property rights is of little value without a good monetization strategy.
We combine our knowledge of art, acquisitions, advertising, business, corporate strategy, law, marketing, science, and technology to develop creative and practical solutions for our clients. We also have significant experience handling a variety of copyright, patent, trademark and trade secret matters. Our lawyers have technical undergraduate degrees, juris doctorates, and masters of laws in intellectual property. Our lawyers are also authors, scholars and teachers.
We have published on a variety of intellectual property law topics. We have Co-Authored books published by West Law, Law Journal Articles, and routinely write for a variety of blogs on numerous subject areas.
