Trenner Law Firm’s mission statement describes our core purpose, guiding principles, enduring values, and commitment to our clients and the community.
Understand the law.
This may seem obvious for a law firm. But just knowing the law isn’t sufficient. New laws are constantly being written. Existing laws change. Courts interpret laws differently over time. Doing things the way it was done 10 years ago, 5 years ago, or even 1 year ago, can get your business into trouble. The law firm you choose to work with must continually learn and understand the current state of the law, in addition to where the law is headed tomorrow and into the future.
Patent Attorney Mark Trenner has focused strictly on intellectual property law for over 15 years. Over 90% of his practice is patent procurement and strategic portfolio management. Mark regularly attends continuing legal education (CLE) programs in these practice areas, stays current on the laws through trade journals and articles, and frequently meets with his network of other intellectual property and business law attorneys.
While an individual can make achieve great things, a team can often accomplish more. It is important to focus on relationships, not only with the clients, but also with vendors and support service providers.
Trenner Law Firm has good working relationships with a team of dedicated professionals, including drafts-persons for preparing high-quality patent drawings, independent patent search firms, and attorneys in other countries. Working with these professionals allows Trenner Law to maintain low overhead, while focusing attorney time on the clients’ needs.
No one wants to hear something can’t be done. Clients hire law firms to find out how things can be done – legally, ethically, and intelligently.
Patent Attorney Mark Trenner listens to his clients to fully understand their needs. Then he lets his clients know what Trenner Law Firm can do for them, fully explaining all of their options so that the client can make an informed business decision.
