Other key lawyers:


‘It seems that the firm was built around providing an added value to the client in addition to “classic” patent drafting/filing/prosecution/opinions. Each team has a specific expertise in a certain technological field and provides you with a service that combines both professional patent drafting/prosecution and business-oriented filing and prosecution strategies.’

‘There is a dedicated, small team, headed by an experienced partner, that deals with all my filings. There are additional employees that can be consulted. I work with one main contact person on all submissions. The paralegal and billing personnel are very helpful and accommodating.’

‘They are very knowledgeable and experienced, they are quick to respond and deliver, they are available to discuss all matters and options, and they do not waste time or money. They are always cognizant of a start-up’s limited resources, and are aware of what’s important. They are very flexible, and can provide various services when needed.’

‘Svetlana, the senior partner and team leader I work with, besides being one of the most brilliant and professional people I have worked with, is also without a doubt an exceptional person in her dedication, generosity, diligence towards both the client and her team.’

‘The firm appears to be assisted by state-of-the-art information systems evident by the ability to provide us, almost in real time, with any information on our large IP portfolio that we need. I have experience of working also with other IP firms and find them to be above all competition. The firm is overall innovative in their approach, being proactive where needed, among other providing us with ongoing cost-saving advice.’

‘Dr. Ilan Cohn has the role of providing overall strategic insight, he assists us in our licensing activity with invaluable contribution to the company’s success.’

‘Svetlana Stadler is an extremely experienced, sharp and talented patent attorney in the field of physics. Her ability to formulate claims in the broadest possible way is outstanding. Regarding the answering to office actions – there hasn’t been a single event where we couldn’t answer examiner’s objections and obtain proper protection for our IP.’
