Relationship-Powered Representation 

In today’s ever-changing global economy, it’s more important than ever for companies to protect their intellectual property. Being able to develop and implement unique ideas, products, and technologies to establish a competitive advantage can determine a company’s long-term success or failure.

However, bringing a new product or technology to market isn’t easy, and can often create additional, unforeseen challenges that impact a number of different areas of business, from manufacturing to marketing. With so much at stake, it’s imperative for companies to find an IP partner with the depth of experience, tools, and commitment needed to successfully navigate the IP process. Pedigo Law has the expertise, capabilities, and track record to do just that.


As the managing partner at Pedigo Law, Paul Pedigo has a distinguished background in IP law.

Paul has helped clients preserve and protect their intellectual property in over 70 countries.
