From our headquarters in Scottsdale, AZ, we currently service a global client-base of IP Attorneys, Patent Agents, Business Leaders, R&D Teams, Universities, Entrepreneurs and Inventors.

  • Creating research strategies that best utilize time and resources when executed

  • Meet and exceed client needs and deadlines by providing viable research solutions and being reliable and dedicated to getting the job done.
  • Quickly, continuously and concisely Learn, Interpret, Comprehend, Retain and apply technical abilities. Enjoy an ongoing learning and computer-based environment that is dedicated to quality.
