The following is an excerpt from IAM Patent 1000: The World’s Leading Patent Professionals, about Seed Intellectual Property Law Group LLP:

"Innovative Washington-based boutique Seed IP delivers a comprehensive, cost-effective and technologically sophisticated service. Tireless in its efforts to protect clients, this high-performance team delivers crisp results. Chair of the electrical engineering and computer science group, David Carlson is a go-to for licensing negotiations and agreements, and has a transactional skill set that advantages him over others who only focus on prosecution and so have a less commercially value-driven approach. Another noted electrical engineering and software expert is “technically gifted, efficient and highly responsive prosecutor Kevan Morgan.” Steven Lawrenz is a former software developer for IBM who elevates the practice with his knowledge of post-grant proceedings. Shoko Leek, Jeffrey Sakoi and Brooke Quist stand out for their versatility: Leek engages in patent and trademark work and advises on rights procurement, IP strategy, infringement issues and licensing. Sakoi easily gets to grips with all kinds of technology and has well-developed contentious and non-contentious skills that give him advanced strategic insight. Quist undertakes work domestically and internationally and counsels patrons in all areas of intellectual property. On the life sciences side, Karl Hermanns and Samuel Webb are key contacts for the address book. Hermanns has a deft advisory touch with emerging companies whilst Webb has deep pharmaceutical industry knowledge having worked in-house."
