Worked with Nick Pfeifer at Smith and Hopen on multiple patent filings… An overall tremendous experience. Most impressively, Nick not only knows all of the legal aspects of IP, but gained a full understanding of the particulars of our (complex) medical navigation platform and thought about how to protect it. He took the responsibility for the heavy lifting away from us as a client and just took care of everything! Thank you!
As 20-year veteran of live television I consider myself experienced in judging a person’s ability to connect with an audience. I’ve had the opportunity to watch Anton Hopen orchestrate and present a dynamic event featuring young inventors and was highly impressed with his knowledge, professionalism, confidence and speaking style. He would serve as an excellent and highly credible commentator of patent and trademark-related news.
Anton Hopen is an acknowledged expert in patent and trademark matters. I’ve had the opportunity to see him speak a number of times and he conveys both energy and confidence in his presentations. He is a reliable, balanced and trustworthy source of intellectual property knowledge. I would recommend him without reservation.
As a speaker myself I run into a lot of “experts” in their fields but Anton Hopen has a gift that you do not see often in public speaking. Anton is a remarkable speaker with an amazing ability to connect to his audience. I have watched Anton present complex patent and trademark concepts to large groups on a number of occasions. He has a unique ability to convey his message in an understandable and engaging manner to people who have no experience in the subject matter and fellow attorneys alike. In my business I deal with inventors, product owners and big brands on a daily basis and we consider Anton the foremost legal authority in those fields. Anton and I have spoke on several stages together over the last couple of years. Anton is a tremendous asset to any platform he is involved in.
Smith & Hopen has been our Patent Attorneys for 8 years now. I have had nothing but a great and positive experience with them. They are very professional and experienced. They are also great at dealing with all the paper work and organization it takes for the US Patents. Special thanks goes out to Nick & Kari.
Anton and his team did an outstanding job procuring a patent for our innovative Trampoline Arena design. They have a proven process to ensure you can protect your intellectual property in the most efficient manner possible.
Smith & Hopen has proven to be an outstanding partner in the Intellectual Property management process. It is not only their legal acumen but their ability to provide guidance in technical matters. They also have an exceptional administrative staff that make the business processes seamless. I have partnered with S&H for over a decade as both an individual innovator and in the corporate environment, always with exceptional results.
I am the proud owner of Freedom 1 Coffee. As a business owner I would highly recommend Smith & Hopen to anyone looking for a patent or trademark. They are extremely responsive, take great care of their clients and ensure that all legal documents are handled in a timely manner. I was very impressed with how well they kept me informed throughout the entire process of registering my official trademark. Mr. Hopen and his associates were more than willing to answer all of my questions concerning the law and the process behind my trademark.
