At those firms, the juniot work is reviewed by partners with high hourly rates who are often too busy and too expensive to properly revise the work to ensure good quality. At Chapin IP Law, we have no junior attorneys. All of our work product is created from scratch by senior-level higly experienced Patent Attorneys. Our experience and efficiency combine with our low overhead suburban Boston offices, seasoned paralegal staff, advanced IP software and unique firm management significantly shortens pendency times and reduces drafting and prosecution costs and time.

Investments into the Firm in critical infrastructure areas such as staffing and advanced law firm management, docketing and billing software allow the firm to remain very efficient at the practice of Intellectual Property law, without sacrificing quality or tight control of client matters and deadlines. Many of our clients have remarked that our quality of work, experience, responsiveness and attention to client matters equals or exceeds that of much larger firms, while our costs and time-to-issue (and our low RCE rates) are significantly more in line with their business interests.
