What Clients Are Saying

  • I must say that I'm impressed by Mike North’s grasp of the technology in use here! I have lived with this thing for over a year now so I know it inside out, but that you "got it" this quickly is impressive!

    Stefan Akerwall, Founder, Iperial Inc.
  • I have worked with Brad Baugh for about 15 years. In drafting patent applications, he is very conscientious and diligent. He is thorough in gathering information from the inventors and in developing an understanding and appreciation for the inventions. Brad uses that knowledge to draft clear and precise patent applications. I recommend Brad without reserve.

    Michael Gabrik, General IP Counsel at Epson Research & Development
  • In 2008, I began working with North Weber and Baugh. Since then, I have come to count on the firm, and Mike North in particular, as a trusted partner.

    Mike North and his team take the time to understand their clients' culture, goals, budget, systems, expectations, needs, roadmaps, and technology.

    In my different positions as in-house counsel, including Chief IP Counsel, I have come to rely on Mike’s savvy and thoughtful strategic vision and advice. Mike and his team often know what my company needs before they are asked. Mike and his staff have a can-do attitude and always come though in stressful situations. As the person with the law firm relationship, I would be remiss if I did not say that Mike North and his team do their best to always make me look good — which almost always includes figuring out how to do the most thorough job possible within a tight timeline and budget.

    North Weber and Baugh is a firm with the highest integrity, who always strives to impactfully improve its clients’ outlook, position, and results.

  • I've worked with Elaine Heal from North, Weber, Baugh for about six years across a couple of companies and on multiple utility patent apps in software, consumer and industrial electronics areas. It's been a joy working with Elaine. Elaine very insightful on how to prepare both the applications and the office actions and is very patient dealing with inventors who are not familiar with the process of filing patents and with examiners who can sometimes be very challenging. Elaine and NWB have become my 'go-to' firm for patents and I highly recommend them.

  • After working with Mike and his team for nearly 10 years in a corporate setting, Mike was the first number I called when planning to file the first core IP for AdviNow Medical as Founder and Inventor. North Weber and Baugh have been a great partner!
