Ones to Watch in IP, 2016 California
West & Associates is a full-service law firm specializing in the practice of Intellectual Property law. We spoke to Founder Stuart J. West about the firm and the techniques it employs to provide its clients with the highest possible quality of service.
Established in 2004, West & Associates has quickly become a well-respected, fast growing law firm recognized for producing high quality legal work. I draw on my numerous years of experience as an attorney handling various matters related to intellectual property and general legal matters to ensure the firm’s success and make sure that every client receives the highest quality of service possible. This is vital, as I founded the founded on the principle our clients will not need to pay exorbitant fees for top quality work. Therefore, West & Associates firmly believes that the right to protect your ideas and artistic expressions should not be a privilege reserved for only large corporations and the wealthy few. To this extent, we are committed to providing quality legal services at a reasonable cost. As a firm, we work with our clients to explore the boundaries of their ideas and assist them in evaluating the market potential of their creations.
More than ever before, intangible assets such as brands, know-how and reputation are of key importance to businesses, and therefore our work is crucial to ensuring that clients are protected from infringement of intellectual property. We understand that organisations need to maximise the value of their IP assets whilst ensuring that such assets are adequately protected. In order to achieve this, I believe companies need to have strong management and develop their IP strategy in conjunction with the overall goals of the firm. Ultimately, West & Associates is a leader in the field of intellectual property law. I personally have been actively involved in local bar leadership for years, as the section head of the intellectual property section of the local bar association, and was most recently honoured by Thompson Reuters as one of Northern California’s Super Lawyers®, a title reserved for only the top tier of attorneys. West & Associates, A PC is ideally positioned to support all clients with their IP needs, whether it be the prevention of theft or supporting clients through legal action to protect intangible assets.
