When intellectual property is the primary asset for your business you need technology attorneys who understand how to blend legal and business strategies so that your best interests are always served and your business prospers. Unfortunately, almost all successful technology or IP-related companies also need attorneys who are able to successfully prosecute claims through litigation and other means when intellectual property assets are being challenged.
At the law firm of Shumway Van & Hansen we represent technology companies and other owners of intellectual property at every stage of business from start-up through seed, angel, and venture capital financings to initial public offering.

As lawyers who represent businesses and the business interests of individuals, we understand your unique needs and objectives related to intellectual property and business strategy generally.
