About us


Renaissance IP Law Group LLP brings together attorneys with extensive experience in almost every aspect of intellectual property law. Our experience includes patent drafting and prosecution; post-grant proceedings including reviewing proceedings, reexaminations, and reissues; patent, trademark and copyright litigation; appeals; trademark prosecution; licensing; due diligence; and intellectual property audits.

Each partner brings a unique extra perspective to the firm. Mr. Phillips and Mr. Rogers served as judicial law clerks for the United States Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit and thus have a rare understanding of the internal working of the U.S. patent system. Mr. Phillips also served as a patent examiner, giving him an insider’s understanding of how patent applications are examined. Mr. Lee has significant experience in both Korea and the United States, and can thus offer insight to domestic clients seeking international intellectual property protection and international clients seeking United States intellectual property protection. Mr. Crowther and Mr. Meeker had significant experience as engineers before becoming patent attorneys and thus understand an inventor’s perspective on the process of technology creation and protection. Mr. Laurence teaches a course on post-grant proceedings at the George Washington University Law School and has taught law school courses for many years, which keeps him on the cutting edge of patent law.

Our technical experience, which is wide-ranging and deep, includes: complex electrical and mechanical devices; Internet/software technologies; computer system, processor and memory architectures; semiconductor processing and device-level construction; LCD/LED devices; consumer and medical devices; image and signal processing; communication and networking devices and protocols; chemicals; and medical devices. Whether you are a large international company seeking new high-quality representation, a midsize company looking to solidify your intellectual property portfolio, or just starting out and needing advice on your cornerstone intellectual property, Renaissance IP Law Group LLP can deliver the personal attention, technical expertise, and professionalism you deserve and expect. We have successfully helped others in a similar position. Let us show you how we can add value to your innovations.
