The training I received from Thompson Patent Law was way more than I expected.

The training I received from Thompson Patent Law was way more than I expected. Not only did he explain the process, but he also explained the reasoning behind it. This paid dividends as we quickly became on the “same page” with the applications and reports I wrote. Craige and his team tout production of Litigation Quality Patents. After being through the training, I now understand why. The training was impactful and a great learning experience.
