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 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.

CEO, Piccolo Labs (W18)
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.
