The McKinley Law Office is full service intellectual property law firm headed by Douglas E. McKinley Jr. representing clients across the entire Pacific Northwest.  We provide litigation, prosecution, licensing and counseling services relating to patents, trademarks, copyrights, trade secrets and related matters, such as false advertising and other unfair business and trade practices.

In a global economy where capital, human resources, plant and equipment are routinely transferred across national boundaries, intellectual property represents, perhaps, the only durable competitive advantage for Northwest businesses.  Strong protection of your intellectual property assets, and patenting the innovations of your engineering and product development efforts, is often required if your business is to grow and thrive.

At the same time, patenting, and particularly foreign patenting, can represent a substantial investment of your company’s limited resources.  Our office brings a pragmatic approach to protecting intellectual property born of our experience working with some of the region’s most successful technology companies.  We understand the competitive pressures facing companies in today’s technology marketplace, because we have worked inside successful technology companies ourselves.

Working closely with engineering, marketing, and executive functions, our goal is to craft solid strategies for protecting your company’s intellectual property that recognize your particular competitive environment.  We seek to provide a sound intellectual property strategy at a cost that makes sense.  Once a particular course of action is selected, we are proud to bring projects in on time, and within budget.

Our office works everyday to protect cutting edge innovations from some of the leading scientists and researchers in the Pacific Northwest.  Our clients include some of the largest research and development laboratories in the region, as well as some of the most successful high technology startups.  We have successfully secured patents at the cutting edge of science and technology across a broad range of technical disciplines, and every day we earn the trust of our clients to protect their intellectual property.  Contact us to discuss how our office can earn your trust as well.
