“I had the opportunity to work with Kim during my tenure at the University of MN Technology Transfer office.  Kim’s representation of the University included patent preparation and prosecution services, as well as litigation support.  Kim provided high quality results that met University goals and the goals of the faculty with whom she worked.  I never had to worry about missed deadlines or unmet expectations.  Kim’s accessibility and efficiency consistently resulted in excellent work product at low cost.  Kim is driven, self-confident, committed, smart and client-focused. 

Were I to be in a position tasked with hiring outside patent counsel in the future, I would certainly hire Kim.”
