Our Approach

Solving problems before a product or service is launched is often the best defense. At Kinney & Lange, we do more than discuss the legalities of your intellectual property. We learn about your industry and technology. We search and analyze the competition. Your IP strategy and goals take priority to tailor an engagement that fits the focus and scale of your portfolio.

Kinney & Lange serves as direct counsel for a wide variety of clients for IP filing and prosecution as well as post-grant counsel and IP litigation services. We also collaborate with other IP firms and in-house counsel of Fortune 50 and multi-national corporations to engage in strategic special projects. Regardless of our role, you can expect:

Counsel Grounded in Science

Kinney & Lange focuses exclusively on intellectual property, and our firm has evolved with IP law for more than 30 years. Our engineering and scientific backgrounds support a culture of technical curiosity and knowledge across the range of IP, particularly for complex implementation and clearance review.

Problem Solving

Rather than deal in legal theory, we take a practical business approach to IP law. After we identify the existing and potential legal issues, our focus is to help you solve them. It’s how we conduct our thorough “freedom-to-operate” patent clearance analysis as well as ongoing prosecution, licensing, international filing support and IP litigation services. For clients who prefer an ongoing advisory relationship, no stone is left unturned. Our recommendations are designed for practical action.

Relevant Communication

Why add steps when one accomplishes your goal? This is our philosophy when communicating directly with clients or sharing educational articles and presentations. Kinney & Lange attorneys are succinct. We appreciate clarity in all communications, cutting through the clutter to provide exactly the information you need to move forward.

Genuine People

Few things in life or business are guaranteed to be fair. At Kinney & Lange, we strive to present our firm as an oasis of reason and integrity. Founded in the Midwest, our firm culture attracts friendly and approachable people with a dogged determination to do the right thing. We believe in work that gives great invention and ingenuity the chance to flourish. Learn more about our IP counsel.
