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 have worked with Craige and his team at Thompson Law for a number of years. The service and communication has been outstanding.I recently received granted patent for a product that Craige and his team helped me protect. Craige advised me on the routes forward most appropriate for my I.P related business strategy, regarding potential licensing. He also clearly explained my options internationally. I am extremely confident in my patent and I have a much better understanding of the patent process, thanks to the Thompson systems.

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

Two thumbs, WAY UP!

All of my critical concerns were addressed gracefully and the drawings reflect the current state of the design.

Well done to the TPL team. We are all excited over here.

I found your course very interesting and thought-provoking

I've been taking MCLE's and they usually put me to sleep. I just listened to your Attorney Credits course on improving patent performance. I usually cringe when I have to do my MCLE's, but I found your course very interesting and thought-provoking. Thanks again for the best hour of MCLE I've spent in the last 20 years.

His firms attention to detail and preparation is excellent! Highly recommended!

I hired Craige's firm in tandem with an attorney in NY based on the recommendation of a partner at Barton LLP who understood that I needed representation at a reasonable cost without losing the expertise of an experienced attorney.

Craige's attention to detail along with his associates work on our patent application was so well done that when we were singed on by the #1 tech law firm in the country prior to our first seed funding they were very impressed with what Craige's form had accomplished for us.

His pricing is reasonable for a start up that's bootstrapping or for individuals with a patentable idea. He's very experienced in the process of originating the details of the application.

His firm's work is very precise!

Mr. Thompson has Superb Attention to Detail!

Craige and his team worked very thoroughly and efficiently to expertly draft my patent filing documents. His documentation clearly reflected his commanding grasp on the complexities and nuances of my project with great detail. It was a pleasure working with such a great team and I would highly recommend them to anyone looking to protect their intellectual property.

Best Patent Attorney I've worked with!

Craig is one of the best patent attorneys I've worked with. There was a minimum of fuss, very straightforward, and got our patent issued in a little over a year. Will definitely use Craig again for our next IP work.

Highly recommended without any reservations!

Mr. Thompson and another excellent patent lawyer from New York named Mr. Jason Rosenblum were the key members of the legal team that helped me with a very complex patent. Essentially Mr. Rosenblum was recommended to me as an outstanding patent lawyer by a friend who was herself a lawyer, and later Mr. Rosenblum recommended Mr. Thompson as the right person who was going to further help me with my patent. Mr. Thompson sincerely impressed me in many respects. In my experience, he proved to be a super-professional, always using the right words, always polite, always moving the project/ my patent application in the right direction and was very understanding of the fact that I was working on a limited budget. Briefly, he listened carefully to my legal and technical concerns with a lot of patience. He gave me very valuable advice regarding the critical legal aspects of my work, but what impressed me most was his ability to also provide technical advice adding value to a fairly complicated patent. The truth is that I was hoping to get the right legal advice, but I didn't expect that the technical aspect of my work was going to improve as much as a result of his help. Part of that was to help me focus on the important aspects of my work. In the end, I do realize that most people will hire Mr. Thompson for his legal expertise and skills, and what I observed was excellence on all levels. Even during our call with the patent office, every word he said seemed to tilt the balance in my favor and helped the examiner to better understand my patent application. He helped me to make the key changes in the claims. And in the end, that's the best that a patent lawyer can do in that situation. In conclusion, it was an honor working with both Mr. Thompson and Mr. Rosenblum. They helped me a lot and they deserve a warm "Thank you! "

Craige works with his clients to establish a realistic budget, but because his processes are so great, he doesn't overcharge.

Craige and his staff will work with you to accomplish your goals and will provide you with great advice. He works with his clients to establish a realistic budget, but because his processes are so great, he doesn't overcharge.

Because of the background work Craige did for me, we got the patent in about a year without any back and forth with the patent office which made it very cost effective.

Craige did a great job for me. The background work he did before we filed for a patent was excellent. Because of that work we got the patent in about a year without any back and forth with the patent office which made it very cost effective. I highly recommend Craige and his office.
