Welcome to Schwabe

We are excited to announce that we have joined forces with Schwabe, Williamson & Wyatt, a full-service law firm in the Pacific Northwest with 150 attorneys and offices in Portland, Seattle, Vancouver, Bend, Eugene and Salem.

Schwabe's IP practice includes 32 leading IP attorneys along with an exceptional team of highly experienced paralegals. That makes it one of the largest IP groups in a full-service law firm in the Pacific Northwest. At StoFoCo we have built a strong foundation, and we are now taking our practice to the next level to offer clients new opportunities and forward-thinking service.

Our in-depth knowledge of electrical engineering, optics and other technical disciplines are now combined with Schwabe's existing capabilities in software, e-commerce, telecommunications, semiconductor, media, biotech, medical device and consumer product sectors. Our team has a long history of securing, protecting, and commercializing clients' intellectual property rights, both in the United States and abroad. By joining forces, we stay on the cutting edge of where the economy and tech industry are headed.

We look forward to continuing our work with clients in helping to protect their inventions and their brands.

Joining Schwabe will create minimal changes to the service you are receiving from us now and we will continue to be your main points of contact. You will not incur any costs related to the transfer of services and files, and the transition will be seamless. We have your best interest at heart, and while our address will change, our collaborative spirit and commitment to client service remain the same.

>> Full–service intellectual property team

Schwabe is one of the few firms in the region that offers patent prosecution, trademark prosecution, copyright prosecution, IP litigation and IP transactional and licensing services. Together, we understand the full picture and the many elements involved in IP protection, enforcement, defense, and commercialization.

Our IP practice includes more than 30 leading IP attorneys, along with an exceptional team of highly experienced paralegals, legal assistants and support staff. That makes it one of the largest IP groups in a full–service firm in the Pacific Northwest. This combined team has a long history of securing, protecting, and commercializing clients' intellectual property rights, both in the United States and abroad.

>> Tech industry commitment and connections

Like us, Schwabe is committed to serving the technology industry. The firm is well connected in the investment community and the tech industry. Schwabe’s patent attorneys have diverse backgrounds including advanced degrees in engineering and computer science. Several attorneys have worked as engineers or in–house attorneys at technology companies.

Schwabe has been a key driver, leader and contributor in major economic development initiatives involving the tech sector in our region. Schwabe attorneys serve on boards and committees of numerous technology-related industry organizations and serve as General Counsel to several leading technology industry standards setting committees.

>> Broader range of resources and service

Schwabe offers tremendous resources that will allow us to serve our clients in areas outside of IP including business and corporate, tax, licensing, and litigation. Geographically speaking, we will now have offices throughout the Northwest including Seattle, which will allow us to be better positioned to have more face time with our clients.
