We’re A/V-rated intellectual property and business lawyers who offer big-firm licensing and commercial litigation expertise in a small-firm setting. Our attorneys learned their craft at some of California’s best-known firms, where they worked on large and complex matters. They chose to practice at a smaller firm, where they can make a bigger contribution to their clients’ businesses and lives. For more information about the Burgoyne Law Group, please read our firm mission and the bios of our intellectual property and business litigation attorneys, and contact us.

We deliver practical, economical solutions to our clients’ most pressing intellectual property and business law problems. The legal matters we handle often reach across several areas of law. Our focused IP licensing and business litigation expertise enables us to cut through those complexities to the core issues facing our clients. Our small firm surroundings ensure that we resolve those issues in the way that best suits each client’s unique financial and business priorities.

Our attorneys are highly accomplished IP licensing and business litigation lawyers who take pride in their work product and legal knowledge. They like to talk about intellectual property and commercial law, and even write about it. Our attorneys understand, however, that you don’t hire us to write legal treatises or to pontificate about the law. You hire us to develop practical, economical solutions to real-world intellectual property and business law problems. Legal issues, and in particular litigation, are costly distractions. Our mission is to resolve your IP and business law problems quickly and efficiently, so you stay focused on your business.
