Menlo Park innovators should take a serious look at their present patent service provider(s) and consider whether it’s time to step up to a top patent law firm that is also affordable - Maiorana, P.C. Many of Maiorana, P.C.’s clients are established Silicon Valley technology companies competing in key computer, software and semiconductor market segments. We continue to provide superb patent legal services and unsurpassed value for our clients, as we have since 1998. To enhance our responsiveness for our California, San Francisco, and Silicon Valley clients we added an office in San Jose, CA during the spring of 2017. Our new location enables us to more readily conduct in-person examiner interviews in the Silicon Valley US Patent and Trademark Office.

According to Crunchbase there are more than 610 companies in Menlo Park including Facebook (and its acquisitions including Instagram, Oculus and WhatsApp) SRI International, Exponent, Geron, Quantifind, Intersect ENT, InVisage Technologies, WeVideo and Axwave.

We look forward to enabling innovative companies located in Menlo Park or financed by one of Menlo Park’s outstanding venture capital firms to improve their bottom line through acquisition and use of exclusive patent rights.
