Hard IP is a new kind of patent firm; it represents a paradigm shift that will rock the tech world. For too long, popular opinion in the US has been that the patent system is broken, with patent applications at many large law firms costing as much as a car -- fees that most companies can't afford whether they are filing in bulk or just starting up. Hard IP gives you a better option.

Hard IP is a patent agent firm taking advantage of a recent rule change. Thanks to a decision that came down from a U.S.  appeals court in 2016, patent agents can file patents and defend (or challenge) them before the Patent and Trademark Office while all communications between agent and client remain confidential. On the heels of this decision, Hard IP has established itself as the leading patent agent firm -- with patent procurement experience in nearly all aspects of technology and wide-reaching resources nationwide -- dedicated to making patent procurement and post-grant review efficient and affordable. 

Kinza Hecht, the firm's founder and managing principal, concentrates her practice on patent prosecution and contentious inter and ex parte post-grant and reissue work.   She provides creative, cost-effective solutions for her clients, including patent portfolio design and strategic inter partes review (IPR/PGR/CBM) and ex parte reexamination tactics.
