Lee & Hayes attorneys and agents are Leaders in advising inventors of computer and electrical technologies.

Technology advancements in computer science and electronics have dramatically changed the world in just a few short years.  Thanks to these innovations, we now all enjoy a variety of tools that allow us to study, work, communicate and even save lives – in ways never before imaged. For example, if you walk into any coffee shop today, it’s hard to envision a world without eReading devices or tablets.  However, this wasn’t always the case.  Before publicly announcing its Kindle® reader, Amazon entrusted Lee & Hayes with the job of holistically protecting this flagship product. After our successful partnership, Amazon has continued to trust us to understand and protect its most important long-range ideas, including its tablet devices and Fire® TV.

We pride ourselves on working with many such companies that are pushing innovation on the cutting-edge of technology.  We advise some of the world’s largest multinational hardware- and software-focused companies on how to best design and implement an IP strategy that has their corporate goals in mind.  We then manage the preparation and prosecution of their patent portfolios in ways to ensure that their strategic goals are met.  

We work with clients in sectors of electronics and computer science and other hybrid technologies such as: bioinformatics, circuits, communications, electronics, computer hardware and software, consumer electronics, optics, semiconductors and processing equipment, telecommunication hardware, data acquisition systems, imaging hardware, medical devices, network hardware and optics. Our Computer Technology & Electrical Engineering group includes both experienced lawyers and patent agents registered to practice before the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO).  Our lawyers have held positions as in-house counsel and several hold advanced scientific and engineering degrees.  Additionally, our Corporate, Government Relations and Litigation lawyers provide related counsel for our clients’ needs in the general business, regulatory and litigation arenas on a national and global scale.
