"Bryant and Cognition IP ran a highly technical biopharma patentability search for us and were amazing. Ridiculously fast turnaround, clear and comprehensive results, and great walkthrough feedback after. We’ve used other IP attorneys before, but this was the first time we had a universally positive experience."
"Working with Bryant and Cognition IP has been great. They did some really thorough freedom to operate and patentability searches for us in a complicated med-device landscape."
"Cognition IP developed our IP strategy for several computer vision patents. Besides being very comprehensive and having quick turnaround, they also spent a lot of time educating us about the patent application process."
"The Cognition IP guys are miracle workers. Andrew & Bryant took the time to educate us about the process, then took our hastily written draft document & somehow carved it into a beautiful gem, nearly overnight. They're in an entirely different league."
"Cognition IP was a pleasure to work with for our freedom to operate analysis for both of our product lines. They were able to understand our complicated technology quickly and with little effort and time on our part. They combed through a difficult IP landscape in record time and provided us a work product that detailed each patent and the reasons for their FTO conclusions."
"Cognition IP helped our firm accelerate our learning, create our IP strategy, and execute that strategy.”

Life Sciences Patents for Startups
Life sciences includes pharmaceuticals, biotech, and medical devices. IP protection is incredibly important in these fields because of the expensive and long development times and need for defensibility to recoup the initial investment. Many VCs require life sciences startups to have filed patent applications before they will consider investing.
Hardware Patents for Startups
Unless you have a patent, there is little protection in the hardware space from competitors who can reverse engineer and copy your company's hardware product and sell it at a lower price. For this reason, patents are very important for hardware startups and can sometimes be necessary to attract outside investment.
Software Patents for Startups
Software touches every part of the economy, and a fundamental innovation in software can serve as build blocking used by others for decades to come. Approximately half of patent applications filed in the U.S. are now on software inventions, and about half of patent lawsuits in the U.S. relate to software. For these reasons it can be very important for software startups to know about patents.
