Craige Thompson was unquestionably the best

While I worked with some really good patent lawyers when I was at Gillette, Craige Thompson (from Fish & Richardson at the time) was unquestionably the best. Absolutely incisive in understanding the details of invention disclosure in complex areas of engineering and physics. A great communicator, he asks good questions and listens to answers, and explains patent law to laypeople with great clarity and skill. An expert in drafting patents that have no loopholes. I hired Thompson Law 10 years later, and got the Craige Thompson of old, plus more people like him. I wouldn’t go anywhere else.

Craige devised a patent strategy like we were going to war!

Craige Thompson and the staff at Thompson Law office have done an outstanding job for Flyback Energy Inc. Intellectual property underpins every aspect of FEI technology. Craige has a high level of engineering knowledge and an in-depth understanding of physics as well as great legal expertise. Flyback Energy Inc. lost thousands of dollars to other patent law firms because they could not grasp onto or understand the complex electromagnetic physics that FEI technology is based on. Not only did Craige create great patents for us, he devised a legal defense strategy like we were going to war. The patent work Craige has done for FEI has also been very expedient and cost effective. Bar none the best.

I got a fantastic result from my patent team at TPL!

I got a fantastic result from my patent team at TPL. The “Point of Novelty Report” they created was amazingly effective because it got us to an allowance in less than a year without even a single office action from the USPTO. My PON Report provided a clear plan that enabled us to hit the bullseye immediately. We were able to get very effective and valuable claims without having to go back and forth with the patent examiner, which saves a lot of time and money. Just as Craige says, the Point of Novelty Report does work incredibly well.

I have known Craige since our days at Plexus. He started his career there as analog and power electronics design engineer where he developed exceptional solutions to challenging design problems in medical, automotive and industrial products. I had the pleasure of working with Craige on an IP project while he was at Fish. Craige developed various cost-effective strategies to assure our “freedom to operate” with a new product. I highly recommend Craige’s IP law work. He is detail oriented, has a great technical background, works as hard as anyone, and I have known Craige since our days at Plexus.

Craige Thompson he has nailed the art and science of patent prosecution and defense!

In my time working and collaborating with Craige, I have found that he has nailed the art and science of patent prosecution and defense. His consciously defined best practices and unique insights truly set him apart – and, he communicates these in such a way that his clients can appreciate the value of his advice and strategies. Last but not least, he is one of the most decent people you will ever meet. In my estimation, Craige is unequivocally the smart choice when it comes to protecting products and inventions with quality patents – those that will stand up in court. Get to know him sooner rather than later.

TPL Helped Us Immensely With a Host of Critical Inventions

I and my team have appreciated the work of Craige Thompson and his team at TPL over a number of years. TPL’s initial work and flexibility on non-prosecution fronts helped us immensely at a number of key times. TPL’S availability, creativity and careful claim drafting pushed a host of critical inventions into patent applications that are now on file around the globe, and TPL’S creativity and persistence with examiners helped us to salvage numerous matters that were not drafted at a 'litigation quality' level.
