MPG is a boutique law firm specializing in intellectual property (IP), with a focus on patent preparation, prosecution and post grant proceedings before the USPTO.

Our group of professionals is highly skilled in the art of patent prosecution, and our consistent high quality work product at competitive rates has made MPG a "go-to" firm for many of Silicon Valley's well known technology companies. MPG also has an established international patent practice, which is highly regarded by our client companies in Asia, Europe and throughout the world.

The Post Grant Proceedings (PGP) group at MPG has an excellent track record of aggressively handling post grant matters before the USPTO. Attorneys working in the PGP group of MPG are seasoned practioners with decades of USPTO experience and knowledge of procedural rules established to expedite proceedings after the 2011 enactment of the America Invents Act (AIA). MPG often partners with litigation firms handling ongoing or contemplated litigation, as systematic coordination is required so that consistent positions can be maintained throughout a post grant process. MPG's experience with post grant matters and small firm structure translate into substantial cost savings for the client.
