On-Demand In-House IP Attorneys

On-Demand In-House IP Counsel work with corporate clients on a full-time or part-time temporary basis.  The duration of the engagement can range from a couple of months and up to two years.  Under typical circumstances, the attorney time is purchased on a retainer basis which allows for more economical pricing for the required services.

The On-Demand In-House IP Counsel are contracted to customers independently of the Schwegman firm, and the Schwegman firm receives no compensation, so an on-demand IP attorney is ethically free to act independently from the firm.
