Client Comments

"Peacock Myers is an IP firm of global caliber and local service. Our venture capital firm works with Peacock Myers on a variety of intellectual property and corporate legal matters. We have been particularly pleased with the quality of their service in understanding not just the legal issues, but the contextual business factors that matter to our high-risk, high-reward portfolio companies. Working with Peacock Myers is a "no-brainer.""

-Trevor Loy

"Deborah A. Peacock's firm, Peacock Myers, unquestionably the best Intellectual Property (IP) firm I've worked with during my 20-plus year career in the technology sector. She, and all the attorney's at her firm, have an excellent grasp of IP law and know how to partner with companies to maximize their legal fees related to protecting IP. They are indeed partners. They take the time to understand the clients' needs and don't rush to file patents just because they are possible. They work closely with clients to understand how best to utilize patents, trademarks, contracts, and trade secrets to build a sustainable IP position. Moreover, they are also incredibly responsive. And, they are extremely cost effective. The work her firm does is equal or better than that of much larger firms that specialize in IP and is almost always a much better value. I highly recommend Peacock Myers to any technology company. In particular, young, VC-backed companies, could search for a long time and not find a better attorney at any price. My only hesitation in recommending her and her firm is that I'd like to keep them from getting too busy to keep up with my IP needs."
