Summary

Steve Keefe is a patent attorney having significant experience in patent prosecution and intellectual property counseling matters. He has worked extensively on both U.S. and international IP matters. Steve is also a licensed Professional Engineer and U.S. military veteran.

He entered the intellectual property law field in 2006 as a Patent Examiner with the United States Patent and Trademark Office. Steve then joined a large, leading IP law firm as a patent agent and then as an attorney. He has well over a decade of combined law firm and in-house IP counsel experience.

Based on his experience, Steve learned what typical law firms do right and also how those typical firms, hamstrung by their conventional organizations, fall short of providing high quality IP at low cost to clients. He organized Keefe IP using the lessons learned from his wide breadth of experience. Stephen L. Keefe LLC maintains a singular focus on providing the highest quality IP work to each client at fees significantly below what conventionally-organized law firms typically charge.
