Our Firm Protection

After gaining experience at general practice and IP firms in and around Chicago, founding partners Tom, Brent and Mike formed Miller, Matthias & Hull LLP. All three were trained by some of the best patent attorneys in the United States and worked their way up to equity partner level in a nationally prominent Chicago patent firm.

In 2005, they decided to leave the confines of that equity partnership and start Miller, Matthias & Hull LLP. Rather than continuing in a larger firm supporting both a diverse litigation practice as well as a patent prosecution practice and being responsible for the overhead associated with large law firms, they decided to focus their firm on what they do best – drafting patent applications, prosecuting patent applications, and providing opinions and counseling to clients regarding patentability, right-to-practice (infringement), due diligence, and related issues.

The result, we believe, is a more agile firm that is able to provide quality patent prosecution and opinion services at a more affordable price to our clients.

Today, Miller, Matthias & Hull LLP acts as an extension of its domestic and international clients’ staff to provide patent prosecution and counseling according to their clients’ customized needs and timing.

Miller, Matthias & Hull LLP partners with clients to provide superior patent prosecution and counseling services, from the first idea session to the product launch. With practical experience in the industries we serve, we understand our clients’ challenges and work alongside them to find the best solutions. The team of professionals at Miller, Matthias & Hull LLP is tenacious when protecting its clients’ ideas, and relies on a diverse portfolio of patent expertise and knowledge to service a broad range of client needs.
