Precision IP, a boutique Silicon Valley law firm, announced today that it uses CPA Global, the world’s leading provider of intellectual property (IP) management services and software, for paralegal, docketing and patent/trademark renewal services.
Precision IP’s founder, Varun A. Shah, had previously used CPA Global’s services and technology when he was Global Head of Intellectual Property Development at Aruba Networks.
Shah comments: “Since my days at Aruba Networks, I have had complete trust in CPA Global. When I started Precision IP, I incorporated their services into my business model from the beginning. Their software and personnel track all my cases and remind me of any patent or trademark related deadlines. Also, CPA Global provides skilled paralegals and docketing professionals who are trained on FoundationIP, the company’s software for managing IP portfolios. The CPA Global team is effectively an extension of my firm. They adjust their procedures to do projects under my supervision, meeting my standard and specifications. The results are consistently excellent and this frees up my lawyers to spend time on practising law rather than being bogged down by administrative tasks.”
Shah explains that because of CPA Global’s services, he has no need to hire or train internal paralegal staff or rent additional office space to house them. This significantly reduces Precision IP’s overhead costs and Shah passes the savings on to his clients. Precision IP does not bill clients for administrative or paralegal services; instead, the firm absorbs these costs and invoices clients only for substantive legal work. Thus, Precision IP clients save time because they don’t need to review paralegal task invoices, and they save money by not paying for paralegal services. Providing these time and money savings to clients gives Precision IP an edge over competitors, and Shah notes that the firm is still profitable.
Marc Daleiden, Chief Operations Officer, Services for CPA Global, remarks: “CPA Global is proud to work with innovative boutique firms like Precision IP to help them deliver quality services with greater efficiency. Our teams seamlessly integrate with the client’s internal resources and workflow procedures to deliver superior service, supported by state-of-the-art IP technology solutions. We believe that each client deserves a tailored suite of services that suits its individual needs rather than a ‘one size fits all’ approach.”
