Aerospace and Defense

With nearly three decades of combined industry experience in aerospace and defense, including for Raytheon and General Dynamics, Colby Nipper truly understands the complex intellectual property environment in which aerospace and defense companies live.  Colby Nipper knows the technology and knows the nuances of government relationships and industry competition, including prime vs. subprime contractor dynamics.  We are fluent in industry lingo and acronyms.  We can help aerospace and defense companies achieve their intellectual property strategy without compromising their many government and industry relationships, and we can do it with a style that is familiar to them.
