Our Vision and Philosophy

Lee IP Law was founded in 2000 with a vision towards establishing a preeminent world-class intellectual property law firm. We are steadfast in our commitment to providing our clients with the highest quality of legal service in an efficient and effective manner.

Our firm’s philosophy is to look beyond a person’s credentials and value a person’s character, integrity and professionalism. These principles guide all aspects of the firm with respect to our goals, our people and, therefore, our representation of our clients.

We seek to partner with our clients and attempt to understand as much about their business as practical to provide the highest level of service and counsel. We strive to develop a high sense of teamwork to create efficiencies and synergies to achieve maximum effectiveness. Such an understanding promotes collegiality and team work and allows us to make the most of the strengths of each member to better serve the firm’s clients.
