Joe Shallenburger, Chief Patent Counsel, Cascade Microtech Inc. (now FormFactor Inc.)

KRDG is a small firm that does better work than I have ever seen come out of a large firm, even a large patent boutique.  They excel at understanding the invention and how to cover it broadly, usually determining that the invention is more broad than our engineers initially thought, while being able to draft patent applications in such a way that the patents issue, not only in the US, but all over the world. KRDG also has an extensive network of foreign IP associates all around the world who not only file applications and responses to patent office actions, but also provide substantive input into how to best draft and amend claims in their jurisdiction, while keeping in mind what results the client wants.
