What Sets Us Apart
Commitment to Clients
OBWB promises to act as a trusted partner on behalf of all the clients we serve. Client satisfaction is our top priority and we believe there is more to intellectual property than just lawsuits and patent applications. Our guiding philosophy is based on creating long-term relationships with clients and servicing their IP needs and goals that arise over time. We also understand that effective communication is imperative in order for us to evaluate the effectiveness of our service and for maintaining cost-effective and seamless representation. We are committed to bringing value to our clients by delivering quality services at reasonable rates. We make an effort to learn all that we can about our clients’ businesses in order to provide effective, pragmatic counseling and advice.
Breadth of Technical & Business Knowledge
OBWB's strength stems from the knowledge and experience of our legal professionals. Our IP team includes scientists and engineers with advanced degrees in areas including biology, chemistry, computer science, mechanics, electronics, and physics. Prior to joining the firm, many of our legal professionals built highly successful careers at research institutions, engineering firms, and large multinational corporations. This combination of technical, business, and legal experience has provided us with an in-depth, first-hand understanding of the needs of our clients.
We Speak Your Language
OBWB is fortunate to have an extremely diverse membership whose origins span the globe. Our professionals collectively speak more than 20 languages, including Arabic, Chinese, Japanese, Korean, French, German, Italian, and Spanish. The variety of cultures and backgrounds brings a unique, global perspective to the firm that reinforces our international focus.
Added Value for Clients
OBWB understands that clients are seeking real value and certainty with respect to outside legal costs. Our strategic locations allow us to operate in low-overhead environments and give us the flexibility to provide efficient services at reasonable prices. To ensure that we are meeting our clients’ needs, we are flexible and adaptable in pricing options, offering creative alternative fee arrangements that maximize efficiency, value, and service. We help clients understand the implications of problems they are facing and work to find solutions short of trial, helping to avoid costly litigation and other IP issues.
