With 20+ years of experience working in the IP field, attending conferences, and engaging as a member of professional associations, I’ve accrued a variety of knowledge and insight about what it takes to help attorneys and firms stand out in this competitive industry.
The practices I’ve developed and refined over my career equip IP attorneys with the skills, knowledge, and systems they need to master the BD process.
I’m passionate about helping my clients overcome the stress and anxiety of business development. Together, we work through the theory and tasks that help them attract clients and set goals that take their firm to the next level.
“I have known Phil for 20 years. I have had the pleasure of working with a consumate professional who is both an advisor and friend. Above all, I am impressed with Phil’s ability to quantify, in a highly organized manner, the actions needed to grow a law firm business and create a stand-out presence online and in person. It is without hesitation that I recommend Phil to law firms who are looking to grow connections with clients and expand their networking capabilities.”
“Working with Phil to expand my law firm’s trademark prosecution practice has been a remarkably successful endeavor.
From the outset, Phil listened and understood my goals, and was expert in crafting a marketing approach that not only helped accomplish those goals, but did so in a way that was (largely) natural and comfortable for me.
His approach is personable, and he is a joy to interact with. I highly recommend reaching out to Phil if you are interested in expanding your law firm’s outreach to prospective clients.”
“What impresses me most about Phil is his bespoke approach to coaching, coupled with his deep knowledge of the IP industry. He truly understands the challenges faced by IP professionals, whether you are a practicing attorney, paralegal, or service provider like myself. Part coach, part counselor, Phil is somebody you definitely want to have by your side if you are looking to improve your performance. As a bonus, he is fun to work with, even if he might be a bit of a “taskmaster” at times :). He will keep you focused!”
“There are few business development consultants that work in the patent field and Phil is a true expert. He has a great network, which he connected us to, which still yields results today. Most of all though, he has deep understanding of why people buy services for patent strategy, licensing, monetization and litigation and manages to translate that into actionable advice that brings in clients.”
