Why Us

As a start-up company ourselves, we are attuned to the needs and expectations of start-up companies. By helping companies form a cohesive intellectual property portfolio, we provide them with assets that are attractive to investors, as well as recourse against anyone who infringes on their ideas.

Through the utilization of cloud-based technology, we offer clients a secure and personalized client portal where they can access documents, view deadlines, and pay their bills online amongst other things. We also believe in supplying clients with high-touch customer service to better help in meeting their business demands.

Our Philosophy

The American Dream is not dead it is just outdated. With a fast-changing technological landscape influencing how we conduct our everyday lives, the introduction of “the startup” is a modern take on an older dream. This landscape has created a sense of immediacy that has shifted the benchmark for growth from the stability of linear expansion, to the traction gained by exponential growth. Whether it’s users, clicks, or sales, a high rate of growth coupled with a quality intellectual property portfolio is essential to attract investment opportunities. With this in mind our philosophy is to efficiently create robust portfolios to aid in this New American Dream.

Our Promise

We at MG Miller will provide honest and pragmatic counsel, treating your business as if it was our own. Through comprehensive due diligence leveraged by our experience, we will provide high quality legal service to meet your business needs.

Patents protect your invention by granting you a limited monopoly. Depending on the type of patent filed, patent protection can extend to things such as mechanical devices, some software applications, financial instruments, chemical compositions, integrated circuits, designer furniture, UI/UX, and new varieties of plants.
Trademarks give you protection over your brand. Specifically, trademarks give you the right to use a name or logo in connection with the goods you sell, the services you provide, or both. Trademarks can cover your company name, a product line, a jingle, a certain color, and many other distinctive aspects of your brand.
Copyright is a form of intellectual property that protects your creative expression. By assisting clients in obtaining copyright registrations and negotiating licensing deals, we help creative types monetize the fruits of their labor. Copyright registrations can extend to sound recordings, source and object codes, movies, books, and buildings allowing artists of all types to be protected.
Trade secrets cover confidential information that adds value to your business. This includes things such as customer lists, proprietary formulas, algorithms, manufacturing techniques, methods, and processes. It’s important to take the proper steps to appropriately safeguard this information as failing to do so can lead to you having no real recourse against corporate espionage, or similar theft.
Many clients regularly need legal services but can’t afford to retain permanent in-house counsel. By serving as outside general counsel, we afford our clients the opportunity to receive an unlimited amount of legal services for a reasonable monthly fee. We offer contract review, negotiation assistance, risk management, and on-site counseling.
Contrasted with the outside general counsel service, the lawyer on call service allows clients to pre-purchase a certain amount of hours of legal service in a given month. Companies that are in their earlier stages frequently only need to have a handful of questions answered and we find that this to be an attractive alternative to full outside general counsel services.
