About WAVS

History of the Firm

The firm was founded in 1993 and quickly grew to a respected group of young, motivated lawyers. By the mid-1990s, we were one of the few firms trusted to develop patent portfolios in software and network technology, and we worked closely with industry pioneers such as Apple, Cisco, and Sun Microsystems. As we grew over the next two decades, many elite research institutions and leading companies in essentially all technology areas—from protein design to satellite propulsion, and from biometric signal processing to CRM systems—retained us for strategic intellectual property counseling and to develop key portions of their patent portfolios. Many of these institutions and companies have partnered with us for over a decade.
