Richard Goldstein: Patent Attorney & Business Coach   arrow

While most patent attorneys do not work with individual inventors, Richard Goldstein has built a career on working with both individual inventors and start-up companies.

  • His approach includes listening effectively to their needs.
  • Providing custom-tailored representation.
  • Offering specific guidance to keep their project moving toward their individual goals.

He has given critical advice to more than 10,000 inventors, and has obtained approximately 1,500 patents for his clients.

He also works directly with executives to help them make effective decisions to protect their IP, meet their business goals, and leverage the value of what they have already created.

Rich is actively exploring new ways to help our clients in many domains.
