Opticus IP believes that:
> “Old school” approaches to IP used and promoted by many IP law firms fail to account for the evolving nature of IP and how patents are actually used in technology business in the IP Era of the Information Age.
> Too many IP law firms emphasize client billing over client service and satisfaction.
> Attorneys need to have the best technical expertise to provide the best IP legal service.
> Responsiveness to client communications and matching the type and level of legal service to client needs are critical ingredients of client satisfaction.
> Fixed-fee billing helps clients manage their IP costs.
> Patents are business tools designed for an intended purpose based on a company’s or organization's central operating principles behind why it is seeking patents
> Overlawyering is not a virtue
