Justin Poplin, co-founder and director of Avant Law Group, said the two historical firms see a significant opportunity for an IP boutique to effectively serve the market by avoiding the overhead and administrative burden of large generalist law firms. „We will continue to provide tailored patent and trademark services that we believe can be done more effectively and efficiently in a specialized company, but with the extra talent that both provide.“ The combination of two boutique IP firms, AVEK IP, will include 13 lawyers, 12 of whom are registered patent attorneys, one patent attorney and two patent engineers. The firm will focus on all aspects of patent, trademark and copyright law, including obtaining and securing intellectual property rights and handling disputes related to those rights.
